This is the incredible story of two of the FBI's most wanted criminals- Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, who went on a love-filled crime spree through 6 states in the American South and Midwest during the depression. Seen as hard-time heroes by many, and reviled by others for their murders, robberies, and kidnappings, they sprang onto the front pages of the national newspapers when two rolls of their "selfies" were confiscated showing them playfully posing with their weapons at a hidepout in Joplin,MO.
