His entire childhood, Nate could never find "the lady" hiding among the 3-Card Monte dealt by the flying fingers of Jimmy Ford (Tom Skerritt). Jimmy is out of prison and directing a Russian crew who blackmails innocent people into doing their bidding. Nate forces his way in--Jimmy is all talk, thinking he can outcon his son (the altar boy) while Nate is determined to find the Queen. Sophie fears the con will dissolve into a pissing contest but Nate knows how his father thinks. At least, he is betting the con that he knows better than Father... Written by LA-Lawyer
