Lawless is the true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation's most notorious crime wave. Their main problem is the ruthless out-of-town agent who comes to investigate their activities. Inbetween all the violent actions, they still find some time for romance too.
