Ivan (Theo James) is a gifted and discerning art thief, whose specialty is infiltrating and stealing from Los Angeles’ highest end collectors. It's a dirty, complex business, and business is good – yet Ivan wants out. Elyse (Emily Ratajkowski) is an aspiring actress whose own past transgressions in Hollywood haunt her, as well as a mountain of debt. These two outsiders are drawn to each other, and as brilliant con artists in their own right, team up for one last, big daring heist. Part Thomas Crowne Affair, part Out of Sight, these two characters ride the razors edge of the high-end LA universe, playing their own shell game against the establishment, and finding each other in the process. With money, incarceration, and lives on the line, their escapade tests their explosive love story and loyalty.
