A detailed accounting of some of one of the most daring and significant gagster shootouts in U.S. history. Kate Barker, better known as “Ma Barker” was the mother of several American criminals who ran the Barker-Karpis gang during the "public enemy era" when the exploits of gangs of criminals in the Midwest gripped the American people and press. She gained a reputation as a ruthless crime matriarch who controlled and organized her sons' crimes. Perhaps she was not a criminal at all, but she sure could shoot!
This docu-drama focuses on one specific shoot-out that occurred on January 16, 1935 when Barker was killed during a shoot-out with the FBI, along with her son Fred.
