What is The Highwaymen about?

In 1934, after two years on the run as robbers and murderers, the criminals Bonnie and Clyde (Mikey Kelley) break several associates out of the Eastham Prison Farm in Texas. In response, Texas Department of Corrections Chief Lee Simmons (John Carroll Lynch) persuades Governor "Ma" Ferguson to hire former Texas Ranger Frank Hamer (Kevin Costner) to track down the criminals independent of the Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Ferguson and her staff are skeptical, having disbanded the Rangers for more advanced units, but she reluctantly allows Simmons to go ahead. Hamer initially hesitates due to his family, but both he and his wife accept after hearing about a devastating shootout in Missouri involving the infamous pair. Hamer's former partner, Benjamin Maney Gault (Woody Harrelson), joins Hamer after a long period of being unemployed and living in hardship.
The FBI has been wiretapping the fugitives' families for a while. Hamer and Gault get access to the files and conclude they are likely making their way "home" to Dallas and drive there; shortly after arriving, they see a man throw a bottle at Bonnie's mother's house and then a boy picking it up. Suspicious, they give chase, but the boy escapes. FBI agents arrive, telling them that Clyde is believed to be in Brownsville, hinting in a snide way that the "retired Rangers" should stay out of the operation.
The Rangers brush off the FBI and meet with Dallas Sheriff "Smoot" Schmid, who introduces them to Deputy Sheriff Ted Hinton (Thomas Mann), a childhood friend of Bonnie and Clyde who can identify them on sight, so Hamer and Gault decide to bring him along, although they are concerned over Hinton's previous hesitations to fire on the pair, especially Bonnie, who he was sweet on as a child. The next day, they hear of a double police murder committed by Bonnie and Clyde near Grapevine. Investigating the site with Hinton, Hamer is appalled by the pair's brutality and emphasizes it to Hinton. They also find that Bonnie was accompanied by a white rabbit. Hinton tells them it is likely a present for a family member.
