Harlan 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 is his beatiful, streetwise protegee who offers him a simple way 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?
