In this story of intrigue, friendship and love, we follow two hustlers through Shanghai in the dynamic period shortly after China's reform and opening up. During that dynamic period shortly after reform and the opening up of China, two friends and their acquaintances struggle to not only survive but to thrive by running hustles throughout Shanghai. Friendship, love, and loyalty are ultimately tested when they embark on a scheme to rob a lucrative amount of money in the for of one check that becomes two, then three, and eventually four. Soon, the game that started as a sure thing becomes complicated with the involvement of different players and their agendas. A web of deceit is spun as everybody tries to capture the real check. Echoing the quick changing pace of modern China, the alliances the players form are broken and realigned again sometimes in the span of one night, a day, or a week as they realize that not all players are created equal and not all games have a clear winner.
