But Tripp’s attempt to meet cute goes wrong when two different sets of thieves invade the bank at the same time.
A would-be superhero meets his soul mate in this quirky comedy drama from Australia. Griff (Ryan Kwanten) spends his days working in an office, where he fields customer complaints and dodges Tony (Toby Schmitz), an obnoxious co-worker who enjoys making awkward Griff the butt of his mean-spirited jokes. What Tony doesn’t know, though, is that Griff has a rich secret life as an invisible crime-fighter who patrols the city defending the innocent.
