Harry Deane is a London art curator planning an elaborate scheme to con a wealthy collector into buying a fake Monet painting. In order to dupe the buyer, Deane invents a story and recruits a steer roper from Texas, PJ Puznowski, to play the part of a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII. When Deane s convoluted con begins to fall apart, it turns out the simple Texan girl isn t so simple after all, and so begins a classic battle of the wits. Who will get the money? Who will get the Monet? Who will get the girl?
