Big-time con-man Lawrence Jameson’s livelihood is threatened by the arrival of small-time con-man Freddie Benson in the swanky French coastal town of Beaumont sur Mer. After a spot of ‘getting to know you’, the duo join forces and set about their shared practice of fleecing wealthy society ladies by spinning them hard-luck tales.
Lawrence is by far the more experienced, and Freddy forces him to share his knowledge so that he can get a bigger bite of the cherry. When the time eventually comes to bid adieu, Freddy decides to stay a bit longer in Beaumont sur Mer, but it quickly becomes apparent that this town ain’t big enough for the both of them.
