Episode Five: “The Maple Syrup Heist” – In Canada, maple syrup is worth more than oil. When $20 million of syrup goes missing, the trail leads back to an epic battle between The Federation of Maple Syrup Producers and a band of rebels waging war against regulation.
“A distant cousin to the movie Fargo.”
“A seriocomic crime thriller wrapped around an explanatory journalism piece…it’s Ocean’s 11, but with barrels of maple syrup. If Steven Soderbergh isn’t tired of heist films yet, here’s his next subject, poured into a white metal drum and cleanly labeled.”
“A multimillion-dollar maple syrup heist is just about as good as it gets…This whole thing is like a real-life French Canadian season of Fargo and I love it so much.”
