Synopsis by Mark Deming

In this comedy-adventure story for the family, Brad (Clayton Taylor) and his friend Frankie (Steven Losak) are playing in the attic of the apartment building they both call home when they find something unexpected -- a suitcase filled with money. Working under the time-honored principle of "finders keepers," the two boys take the cash, but rather than spending it on themselves, they use their windfall to help the people in their neighborhood who are having trouble getting by. While Brad and Frankie's benevolence is well intentioned, it soon causes a very big problem -- it seems that the money was actually the haul from a major bank robbery, and the crooks want their money back. The boys have to find the crooks and lead them to the police, while trying to figure out how to get the money back to its rightful owners. Also released under the title Angels in the Attic, The Robin Hood Gang features Brenda Price, Scott Christopher, and Dalin Christiansen in supporting roles.
