When his employers instigate a good-natured contest amongst their employees, silver-tongued telemarketer Kasey Miller (Lamorne Morris) vows to stop at nothing to win, including conning several struggling individuals.

Kasey must then put his skills of persuasion to the test if he is to escape unharmed. Written and directed by Khaled Ridgeway. Co-starring Jackie Earle Haley and Haley Joel Osment.
