Going in Style [Stepping Out]

Based on the short story "Here on a Visit" by Edward Cannon. Copies belonging to producer Tony Bill with his signature in black holograph ink at the top right corner: "Tony Bill producer." Included is a typed letter of provenance signed by Bill.

A warm, honest comedy that follows three retired men living on social security who decide to pull off a bank heist to finance their last days, and more importantly to bring some excitement to their otherwise humdrum lives.
