Summary

Irving Rosenfeld dabbles in forgery and loan-sharking, but when he falls for fellow grifter Sydney Prosser, things change in a big way. Caught red-handed by FBI agent Richie DiMaso, Irv and Sydney are forced to work under cover as part of DiMaso's sting operation to nail a New Jersey mayor. Meanwhile, Irv's jealous wife may be the one to bring everyone's world crashing down. Based on the 1970s Abscam case.
