    . The Newton Boys, the movie, is about the most famous bank robbers of the 1920s. The story of four real life siblings who are poor farmers that realize very early that there is no future in the bleak cotton fields. 

    They turn to the business of robbing banks one after another from 1919 to 1924. They get pretty good at it. In 1924 they pull the greatest train robbery in American history, $3 million mail-train outside Chicago. Just another day on the job until Joe accidentally shoots his brother Doc.
