Description: Conman Leo Garfield and his glamorous wife Lily are the coolest couple in town. They dream of an escape from the drudgery of everyday crime - they want a one-way boat trip to Cuba. Together, they mastermind the most audacious scam. Drawn into their web is an assortment of loud and tasteless characters - all wanting their piece of the action - including a sadistic loan shark called Troy, who is chasing Leo for repayment for gambling debts, and a simple-minded Goliath named Moose searching for his girlfriend and wanting Leo's help. Then there is Bruno, Leo's father figure and fitness freak gang boss, and an eccentric convert to fashion named Julius. As the scam of a lifetime gets underway, Leo and Lily start wildly turning the tables to keep one step ahead of the deceit and intrigue. Every encounter poses a question of truth and lie. Who's lying? Who's telling the truth? The truth is that nobody is telling the truth. Or are they?
