Poised with sharklike self-assurance, Marla Grayson is a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means. It's a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business-partner and lover, Fran, use with brutal efficiency on their latest "cherry," Jennifer Peterson - a wealthy retiree with no living heirs or family. But when their mark turns out to have an equally shady secret of her own and connections to a volatile gangster, Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play - one that's neither fair, nor square.Written by

Tasers/stun guns do not work as they do in the film. A "dry stun" will cause pain, but the pain immediately ends when then taser is no longer pushed against the skin. A pronged hit will cause the Taser to activate for 5 seconds and cause some immobility, but can be removed after that time.
Marla would have been beaten by the two bodyguards at the end instead of being able to easily subdue them. See more »
You recognize that woman, Marla? That's your mother, isn't it? After I destroy you, I will destroy her.
Go ahead. I don't give a shit about that fucking sociopath.

Waste of talent
I've worked over 30 years as an attorney specializing in elder care, and I've witnessed tragic exploitation of elders by family members and caregivers. But the idea that a complete stranger could fraudulently waltz in and involuntarily commit a competent senior citizen and personally pocket their assets is complete fantasy. If a corrupt judge was in cahoots, it would take a fast second for them to be reported by an attorney or social worker. So, the premise is nonsense. But this movie is a hot mess for many reasons. The actors are skilled, but the elder fraud story gives way to a bizarre Russian mafia plot that is laughable. And who are we supposed to root for among these despicable crooks and con women? Very disappointing.
