Inspired by the true life tale of the notorious con man who eluded the FBI for years, director Mikael Saloman's tense docudrama details the bizarre exploits of Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, whose elaborate façade began to unravel after he kidnapped his own daughter. With his cunning and chameleon-like ability to alter his appearance, skilled con artist "Clark Rockefeller" (Eric McCormack) effortlessly impersonated a variety of high profile figures. Soon after making his way into upper echelons of Boston high society, Rockefeller pulled off his most elaborate con ever by successfully courting and marrying Sandra Boss (Sherry Stringfield), a Harvard graduate and millionaire working for one of the city's top management consulting firms. Twelve years later, Sandra discover the incredible truth about her deceitful spouse after their marriage ends in divorce, and "Clark" kidnaps their daughter Reigh (Emily Alyn Lind) after losing custody of the girl during a bitter court battle. Desperate, she begins working with the authorities to get her daughter back, and is shocked to learn that the man she raised a child with changes identities like most people change socks.
