Lou Mullin is an eccentric criminal living out of an abandoned strip mall. In the basement, he's building a casino. And in his spare time, he's grifting a small, recession-ravaged community by selling them on nonexistent careers.
Bill Ellis—an unemployed businessman on the brink of bankruptcy—is taken by Lou to the tune of four thousand dollars. As a last-ditch effort to turn his life around, Ellis plots a daring heist to get the money back.
