Soon to be a major motion picture starring Nicholas Cage and Sam Rockwell, and produced and directed by Ridley Scott.
Roy and Frankie are matchstick men - con artists. Partners in elegant crimes for years, they know each other like brothers and have perfected the rules of the game.
Roy, the careful one, saves every penny and takes his medication regularly. Without the pills, his obsessive compulsive disorder kicks in and he is too nauseated to do anything but stare at the dirt on the carpet.
Frankie is the adventurous one, hungry for a big score. He wants Roy to join him in running a tricky game, but Roy is distracted, and for a good reason: he has just discovered that he is the father of a teenage daughter from a marriage that ended long ago.
Much to Frankie's frustration, the kid wants to get to know her father - and she also wants to learn the family business . . .
