At the age of 50, with bank robberies, counterfeiting, and several fortunes gained and lost behind him, he is on the run and living abroad. As Spencer’s life hangs in the balance, his son Jason arrives in Amsterdam. While he prays for a miraculous recovery, he ponders who his father really is.

He has raced anxiously to be by his bedside and yet he is somebody he doesn’t know well at all. Jason begins digging in earnest. He begins to piece together the story of The Old Man’s life.
