Brief Synopsis

Based on a true story, Frank W. Abagnale was employed as a doctor, a lawyer and as a co-pilot for a major airline company all before reaching his 21st birthday. A successful con artist and master of deception, Frank is also a brilliant forger, whose skill at check fraud has netted him millions of dollars in stolen funds, much to the chagrin of the authorities. FBI Agent Carl Hanratty has made it his prime mission to capture him and bring him to justice. However, Frank is always one step ahead of Carl baiting him to continue the chase.
