What Jake Vig doesn’t know just might get him killed. A sharp and polished grifter, Jake has just swindled thousands of dollars from the unsuspecting Lionel Dolby with the help of his crew -Gordo, Miles and Big Al – and two corrupt LAPD officers – Lloyd Whitworth and Omar Manzano. But as Jake soon learns, Lionel wasn’t just any mark, he was an accountant for eccentric crime boss Winston King.
Never one to shy away from a challenge, Jake offers to repay “The King” by pulling off the biggest con of his career. The mark? Morgan Gillette, a banker with deep ties to organized crime. With so much riding on the outcome, Jake decides to bring in a brash, blonde pickpocket named Lily, who joins the crew in a complex scheme involving corporate loans, creative accounting, wire transfers and off-shore accounts.
