Dog Day Afternoon



What's it about?

Sonny and Sal attempt a bank heist which quickly turns sour and escalates into a hostage situation and stand-off with the police. As Sonny's motives for the robbery are slowly revealed and things become more complicated, the heist turns into a media circus.

Recounting the most casual bank robbery in history, Dog Day Afternoon slowly unravels into a chaotic but touching character study about what happens when someone is pushed to the edge.
