Rollo Heinz, burglar extraordinaire, gets nabbed one night. Sent off to jail, issued a pair of sneakers ten sizes too large, he sits handcuffed in the holding tank, waiting for admission into the main population. He has a vision...across the room hangs a painting, the famous Creation of Adam by Michelangelo. The nametag in bronze on its frame says, "Painted by Laverne "Buddy" Budd, Antonio "Zippo" Gonzalez, and Rollo Heinz.
Rollo is admitted, and what transpires in the following hours, days, and weeks is as brilliant as Michelangelo's masterpiece, although everything has a price.
