Brief Synopsis

Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection, becomes romantically involved with novice con artist Jess. As he's teaching her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and he abruptly breaks it off. Three years later, the former flame-now an accomplished femme fatale-shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes race car circuit. In the midst of Nicky's latest, very dangerous scheme, she throws his plans for a loop-and throws the consummate con man off his game.
