A New York street hustler specializing in name-brand knock-offs finds his highly profitable game suddenly complicated when his ex-girlfriend shows up toting the son he never knew he had in director Sean Baker's warmhearted tale of a life interrupted. Lucky makes his living by coaxing wary tourists into the back room of a Broadway Street clothing store and selling them cheaply produced knock-offs of popular designer brands. For a Ghanaian immigrant, Lucky seems to be doing fairly well, that is until his ex-girlfriend drops off their two-year-old son and promptly disappears without a trace. Now faced with a series of important decisions that he never anticipated having to make, Lucky struggles to find a means of maintaining his hustler lifestyle while reluctantly adjusting to the demands of fatherhood.
