Overview

A small-time con man from the streets teams up with an aging grifter and legendary scam artist to pull off the scam of a lifetime in this thriller starring Federico Luppi and following in the tradition of David Mamet. Ernesto Ernesto Alterio may be slick, but his career in crime simply hasn't progressed past working three-card monte on gullible Madrid marks who think they can't lose. When Ernesto makes the acquaintance of middle-aged confidence man El Manco Manuel Alexandre he is shocked to learn that the veteran criminal has close ties to notorious con king Federico Luppi. As the street-smart trio combine their skills and the greenbacks start rolling in, Federico hatches a lucrative real estate plan that could make them all millionaires. There's just one catch though -- in order to carry out the plan, the crew will need the help of Federico's ex-lover Pilar Victoria Abril, and the introduction of this volatile new element sends trust among the former trio to an all-time low.
