Roy Waller and his partner Frank Mercer are confidence tricksters. Roy, an obsessive/compulsive sufferer, must take his pills every morning if he wants to avoid panic attacks. The day he losts his pills down his basin, Frank sends him to Dr. Klein a psychiatrist. After a few days, Frank starts to trust Dr. Klein and explains to him that he's left his wife some 15 years before and, from this moment on, hasn't been with a woman.
Dr. Klein contacts his patient's former wife and learns that Roy's got a daughter, the 14 years old Angela. After a while, Angela and Roy get along pretty well and the young girl decides to spend a few days at her father's home. Meanwhile, Roy and Frank are meticulously preparing to swindle of Chuck Frechette. Roy asks his daughter Angela to play a small part in the fraud while Dr. Klein is suggesting to Roy to come back to an honest life.
