Ralph and Pat have finally found in Shelly the right bookkeeper to help manage their riding stable.  Shelly has finally found in them the wealthiest mark she will ever con.  Caroline, Ralph and Pat’s headstrong teenage daughter, immediately distrusts Shelly.  She befriends Brody, Shelly’s wheelchair-bound and heavily medicated husband, and surreptitiously replaces his pills with nutritional supplements.  Bit by bit Brody’s fog lifts.  He comes to life, and violently takes over the con, forcing Shelly to improvise.  Brute force takes the place of finesse as the others, now bound and gagged, reverse the con to save their lives.
