Talking about the storyline, Kaleidoscope is about a squad of thieves that plan to break into a vault to have one of the biggest paydays in their entire life. The question arises whether Kaleidoscope is a true story or not.

The answer is YES. Netflix’s Kaleidoscope is based on a true story of a company that lost around $70 billion in bonds in Manhattan during 2012 Hurricane Sandy. Reportedly, during this hurricane around 147 people were killed with damages of over billions of dollars. Depository Trust and Cleaning Corp of New York was largely affected when their underground vault was flooded. As per information, due to the hurricane the company was not able to open its vault for two days which consisted of 1.7 million paper certificates for shares, bonds, and other financial instruments that are significant for US trading infrastructure. 2012 Hurricane Sandy was the deadliest and most destructive natural disaster that hit the United States in its history.

Talking about Kaleidoscope, the story revolves around a veteran robber named Leo Pap who hires a team of crooks to breach the walls of the USA’s most secured prison. Each person hired by a veteran robber has a unique set of skills that will help to carry out the whole robbery without any failure. The series narrates story about loyalty, tests, betrayal and many more.
