Spanning seventeen years, the film follows the intergenerational relationship between two families in a suburban town in upstate New York. The movie opens as motorcycle stunt rider Luke (Ryan Gosling), living by his own moral code outside societies’ rules, turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his family. Luke’s controversial lifestyle choice means he finds himself on a collision course with ambitious police officer Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper). As the story unfolds we watch how the consequences of this family feud trickle down to haunt the next generation.
