Bob Heggie is a banker at the end of a dead end career. He hates his job, his boss, his life. His wife has left him. He hardly knows his kids and his closest friend is a down and out newspaper seller and they're not really close. In the early mornings he wanders the moors of Northern England with a pair of dogs he doesn't like, listening to Bob Dylan sing about a great bank robbery on his iPod.
