    • Synopsis
    • SUCKER is the story of Lawrence, an 18 year old Chinese Australian who cheats in his high school final year exams and fails to get into Medicine. Banished to stay with his uncle for the summer, Lawrence meets the Professor, a colourful, ageing conman. And so begins a road-trip with the Professor and his daughter Sarah. The Professor teaches Lawrence the art of swindling and cheating, and from Sarah, Lawrence learns a hard lesson in unrequited love. As Lawrence and the Professor work towards their biggest scam, and Sarah and Lawrence plan a swindle of their own, Lawrence is forced to make a choice between love, life and lies.
