Freddy Benson (Steve Martin), a con man, lives off women by waking their compassion with shocking stories about his fake fate. One day in beautiful Beaumont-sur-Mer, he meets Lawrence Jamieson (Michael Caine), who shares the same passion, works the rich ladies with the same scheme, but in quite a different league. With the knowledge of his profession, Freddy forces Lawrence to teach him high-society behavior, so that he himself can earn a major living. When time comes to say goodbye, Freddy decides to stay a little longer. As there is no way two con men can work a town that small at the same time, Lawrence and Freddy agree on a settlement: The first one to extract fifty thousand dollars from a young female target wins, the other leaves town. The sum is no match for Lawrence, the age of the lady no match for Freddy. Let the games begin.
