When small-time cheat Roy Dillon winds up in hospital following an unsuccessful scam, it sets up a confrontation between his mother Lilly and sexy girlfriend Myra. Both Myra and Lilly are ruthless at playing the con game in a league far above Roy and always looking for their next victim. The question soon becomes who's conning who as Roy finds himself caught in a complicated web of passion and mistrust.
