In 2005, two documentary filmmakers embarked on a journey to peer into the daily lives of ordinary career criminals. What they didn't expect was to end up spending a year in the life of Kaspar Carr. A reclusive man, whose skills have made him one of Chicago's most prolific and elusive burglars. As the filmmakers attempt to delve into this highly successful thief's personal life, Kaspar's true motivation continues to elude them. It is ultimately Kaspar who draws them into his world in a way they never expected. Borrowing from the traditions of film noir and cinema verite, "Street Thief" creates a new, exhilarating genre of filmmaking; tapping into our voyeuristic obsession with crime, and questioning the very nature of documentary filmmaking.
