Times were hard for Joey Coyle. A dockworker from a struggling neighbourhood of south Philadelphia, Joey lived with his ailing mother and a drug habit he could barely support. One February afternoon in 1981, he was on his way to score when he found two curious yellow containers lying in the street. They had just fallen off the back of an armoured van and contained $1.2 million, in cash, in unmarked notes from a casino. 'Finders, Keepers' tells how Coyle secretly shared the money with everyone around him, including his girlfriend, random strangers and the area's most notorious mob boss. Against the background of growing media interest in the fate of the missing money, Coyle lived for seven days in a drug-fuelled whirlwind, planning his future as a rich man, but terrified that he was about to be captured and killed. 'Finders Keepers' is the remarkable story of an everyday man faced with an extraordinary dilemma and a dramatic account of greed, generosity and betrayal.
