Seduction. Betrayal. Murder.Who's conning who?

The Grifters walk the razor's edge of life.Hard-playing, high-rollers, they're con-artists out to make a fast buck the best way they know how.There's Myra, (Annette Bening). Sleek, sexy, like a panther in search of her prey, she knows what she wants and how to get it--and what she wants is a partner like Roy (John Cusack.)Roy's master of the "short con"--card tricks, fixed dice, switching $10's for $20's.Myra wants to take him one step further--one step deeper, but not if Lilly can help it.Lilly (Anjelica Huston) has been playing the game all her life and now it's time to get out and she wants Roy out too.Two women, one man playing a taut game where winner takes all, and everybody has something to loose...including their life.
