When they were young, Nina and Erik were con artists with their partner in crime, Jacqueline. But when Nina became pregnant, they withdrew from their criminal life and left Jacqueline behind. Wanting to live a normal life, they settled down in the suburbs of Copenhagen.
Erik and Nina now lead regular lives as law-abiding citizens with their two children, and their scams have been replaced by parent-teacher meetings and mortgages. But while, Nina is ambitious and thrives in her job, Erik has never managed to keep a job and the family depends on Nina’s salary.
Then, Jacqueline turns up after 17 years and changes everything. Jacqueline continued as a con artist after they parted ways and, with threats of revealing their past identity, she talks Nina and Erik into one grand final con.
