Ocean's 8 sees Danny Ocean's sister Debbie lead a criminal gang as they prepare an audacious heist in this all-female spin-off of the Ocean's trilogy. Once released from prison, she and her partner-in-crime Lou recruit a team of seven skilled thieves who are tired of their regular lives, and convince them to partake in a daring, seemingly impossible deed: to steal a $150 million necklace from a waitress at New York's prestigious Met Gala.
