"Ken Leishman: The Flying Bandit” tells the remarkable life story of Ken Leishman, a bank robber, prison escape artist, and in the end, a genuine folk hero. Leishman masterminded several stylish bank robberies during the 1950s and 1960s as well as the biggest gold heist in Canadian history, by using a plane as a getaway vehicle. He also pulled off one of the biggest jailbreaks the nation had ever seen. Through interviews with Leishman and his family and friends, we take an intimate look at one of Canada’s most creative career criminals, and their break from a life of crime; the films features who this legendary character really was.
