Jason, Fran and Eileen move listlessly from city to city, conning everyone they meet. A chance meeting with young Welsh artist Owen Meredith gives Jason the idea for a scam bigger than anything they have attempted before. Cardiff's Tiger Bay is to form the backdrop for their great performance, involving Owen, his multi-millionaire father and a resaurant called The Melt. Young Eileen Locket is new to the world of scammers, and this set-up offers her the chance to prove her mettle. But Eileen is a drifter, coaxed into working with Jason and Fran by promises of glamour and money. The scammers have only each other to hold onto in their self-created world where nothing is solid and real, everything soft and malleable. But these consummate actors are beginning to confuse fiction and reality. Can they really trust each other?
