    • Synopsis
    • In this hilariously charming crime caper set in the eccentric London art world, Nick Edwards owes £50,000 to the super-smooth yet brutal crime lord Foster Wright and has four days to find the cash. Nick knows nothing about working a heist of that size, but when he stumbles across a lost sketch by the legendary Italian artist Antonio Fraccini, he believes he's in the clear. The problem is, it's only worth £15,000! With the help of the eternal cynic Eve and her extremely talented yet naïve artist brother Tony, the plan is hatched: to forge the drawing and sell it to five Mayfair galleries within an hour before the art dealers discover there's a scam going down.
