Plot Summary:

Tessa Thompson will portray Doris Payne, a real-life jewelry thief whose crimes stem back to the 1950s. In her six-decade long career, Payne would enter jewelry stores posing as a well-to-do woman looking for a diamond ring and ask to see an assortment of items. Using her charm, she would eventually cause the clerk to forget how many pieces were outside the cases and leave with one or two pieces. Payne was arrested many times and has admitted to having used 20 aliases, 10 Social Security numbers, and nine dates of birth.
