Two lifelong friends, occasional lovers and constant conmen find themselves on top of the world after founding a company that promises instant enlightenment to its users in this thrilling, brainy caper about scams, schemes, and the absurdity of the American Dream.

At 17, Ezra Green doesn’t have a lot going for him. He is shorter than average, gap-toothed, Internet-addicted and halfway to being legally blind. He’s also on his way to Last Chance Camp, the final stop before juvie.

But Ezra's summer at Last Chance turns life-changing when he meets Orson, brilliant and Adonis-like with a mind for hustling.

Two lifelong friends, occasional lovers and constant conmen find themselves on top of the world after founding a company that promises instant enlightenment to its users in this thrilling, brainy...
