Recounting the life of Doris Payne, who was a poor, single, African-American mother living in segregated 1950s America. Now a glamorous 81-year-old in the film, Doris Payne is unapologetic today about the nearly $2 million in jewels she stole over a 60-year career.
With Doris now on trial for the theft of a department store diamond ring, The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne probes beneath her consummate smile to uncover the secrets of her trade and what drove her to a life of crime. Recreations and candid interviews reveal how she managed her way into any Cartier or Tiffanys from Monte Carlo to Japan, walking out with small fortunes.
