    • Synopsis
    • Maya and Tony are a couple of young grifters. Their usual con is for Maya to lure a businessman from a bar into a hotel suite. Tony then steals his wallet, copies and downloads the credit cards while Maya fends off the victim just long enough for him to complete the job. They are always looking for their big score. Then they meet Pierce, another potential victim at first, but who reveals himself as a senior fraudster posing as a 'mark', with plans of his own. Instead of reporting the couple to the police, Pierce recruits them to help with a delicate job. His client is a wealthy woman, who could profit from a divorce with her philandering husband Martin. She needs to catch him having sex with another woman - on film. Maya's job is to lure the cautious Martin into bed while Tony photographs the action. But the job isn't that simple. Maya begins to fall in love with Martin. Tony is afraid of loosing Maya and he descends into emotional and physical ruin. In the end Maya and Tony are just puppets in a sordid, deadly game.
