In Depression-era Franklin County, Virginia, bootlegging siblings take the law into their own hands. The youngest brother, Jack Bondurant (Shia LaBeouf), considers himself the next Al Capone—he wants to dress in sharp suits, carry guns and drive fast cars, no matter what it takes. Thanks to his ambition, the family's small-scale moonshining operation makes it to the big leagues, in an effort to impress a beautiful but off-limits Amish girl (Mia Wasikowska).

Middle brother Howard (Jason Clarke) is the muscle of the operation and their eldest brother, Forrest (Tom Hardy), leads the family with strength of character and silent determination against corporate greed as the Bondurants' legend grows, along with the dangers they face.

Based on the book by Matt Bondurant.
