Even a con man needs a change of scenery now and again, and for Richard Milhouse "Nix" Miller, Prague seems as good a choice as any. A second-rate hustler in search of new territory, Nix flees Hollywood for Europe, adopting the persona of a hotshot movie producer and screenwriter along the way. Charming, arrogant, and handsome, he quickly locates easy prey in Prague, stealing and conning his way to a luxurious free ride. Blinded by success and his inflated ego, he soon finds himself at the losing end of a perfectly executed scam perpetrated by a stunning femme fatale named Monika. Rather than bemoan lost riches, he views the incident as an act of fate and falls desperately in love with Monika. Convinced that he and Monika would be the ideal pair in both love and business, Nix will stop at nothing to bring them together. What Nix doesn't realize is that Monika will take a scam as far as necessary to make it work, regardless of who gets hurt. Fast-paced, clever, and often hilarious, Gypsy Hearts is a wild ride through cynical territory, packed with enough nihilism to keep it in the true noir tradition.
