"Fresh out of prison in Montreal for a low-level con job, Dennis (Giamatti) ends up in a bar fight with local charmer Rene (Rudd) when he finds out that Rene has begun a relationship with his ex-wife. Unable to find work but eager to make an honest go of it, Dennis reluctantly accepts an offer from an apologetic Rene to travel to New York CIty for a get-rich-quick scheme of selling Christmas Trees."
