Some are born con men. Others are born to be conned.
Harlan (Kevin Pollak - The Usual Suspects, Hostage) is a worn-out grifter who has just broken the most important rule among con artists: don't ever bet with the boss' money. Fiona (Liane Balaban - New Waterford Girl) is his beautiful, streetwise protÃ©gÃ© who offers him a simple way out of his jam - but in their seedy world of thieves, burnouts and hustlers looking for the big score, nothing is ever simple. From garbage-strewn alleys to cheap motel rooms, their "no-brainer" plan takes a hair-raising detour into rip-offs, double crosses - and murder.
If they can pull it all together, they'll be rich. If they can't, there's a hit man waiting... with a pair of hedge clippers. As Harlan and Fiona's ultimate con picks up dizzying speed, it's not long before everyone involved starts to wonder: just who's conning whom?
