LOVE AND DECEPTION HAVE A LOT IN COMMON.
Meet the Goodnights, a respectable family who run a respectable art gallery-and have for generations. Matilda, the youngest daughter, has inherited the secret locked down in the basement of the Goodnight Gallery, the secret she's willing to do almost anything to keep, even break into a house in the dead of night to steal back her past.
THE RISKS ARE INTOXICATING.
Meet the Dempseys, or at least meet Davy, a reformed con man who's just been ripped off for a cool three million by his financial manager, who then gallantly turned it over to Clea Lewis, the most beautiful sociopath Davy ever slept with. Davy wants the money back, but more than that he'll do anything to keep Clea from winning, including break into her house in the dead of night to steal back his future.
AND IF YOU'RE REALLY GOOD AT THEM, THEY BOTH PAY OFF.
One collision in a closet later, Tilda and Davy reluctantly join forces to combat Clea, suspicious art collectors, a disgruntled heir, and an exasperated hitman, all the while coping with a mutant dachshund, a juke box stuck in the sixties, questionable sex, and the growing realization that they can't turn their backs on the people they were meant to be...or the people they were born to love.

“Everybody’s crooked,” Davy said. “The trick is to find out how they’re bent. Then you make sure the consequences are so great they stay straight anyway.”
This is like one of those old movies of screwball comedy... made me feel nostalgic; I really miss them. Lot of crooked faulty charming characters, and it made me chuckle sometimes too :)
Davy Dempsey quiere sus 3 millones de vuelta. Su ex- le sustrajo su dinero con ayuda de otro ex-amigo. Que él primero le robara el dinero a su ex, pues eso apenas registra en su radar.
Tilda Goodnight anda detrás de un cuadro. La reputación y el bienestar de su familia, de su madre, hermana y sobrina depende de ello.
Ambos colisionan en una armario y besos más tarde parece que ella no podrá quitarselo de encima, y que tal vez ambos puedan beneficiarse y conseguir dinero y cuadro.
Bueno las cosas no funcionan exactamente de acuerdo al plan.
