Ocean Ocean who is the main character in the films gets released from prison and
goes against his parole mandate by traveling to California to meet with his friend Rusty Ryan
who is also a criminal. The two plans a robbery attack and involve their wealthy longtime

the caper despite his knowledge on the tight casino security because he wanted to get back at
his rival Terry Benedict who is the owner of the three casinos that are to be robbed.
To implement their plan, Ocean and Rusty hire other criminal experts and their former
colleagues and amongst them being thieves, con men, mechanics, security surveillance
experts and explosives experts. The team goes deep into practicing for the attack and in the
process, the story gets complicated after realizing that Ocean’s ex-wife Tess, has a
relationship with Benedict.
Rusty tries to talk Ocean out of the plan believing that his relationship with Tess will
compromise their plan but Ocean insists on pushing forward with it. The criminal team sets
up a very organized plan which works perfectly well but the plan does not end well for
Ocean. As the other criminals celebrate the victory, Ocean is reported by Benedict for having
violated a parole and he gets arrested while Tess watches.
The robbery plan was so swift in a way that Benedict could not find evidence to link
Ocean with the stolen money. After serving his time for violating parole, they meet up with
