In a stagecoach en route to San Francisco, Grace Rousselot
is posing as a nun to drum up â€śdonationsâ€ť from fellow
travelers. Across from her, Reuben Jones is faking blindness
to prey on unsuspecting travelers. Both grifters are
surprised to learn that they have competition, and even more
surprised when their stagecoach is ambushed and robbed,
leaving them both flat broke.
Not keen to discuss the robbery with the police, Reuben and
Grace decide to work together to recoup some of their
losses. Soon enough, what starts out as a practical
partnership evolves into something more. And with the
Chinese mafia hot on their heels, neither is sure just how
far they can trust a manâ€”or a womanâ€”with a crooked heart.
