Nick Edwards (Matthew Rhys) is a conman who owes £50,000 to Foster Wright (Art Malik), a local mob boss with no aversion to violence.  Luckily, Edwards has just stumbled upon a lost painting by Italian artist Antonio Fraccini -- though it's only worth £15,000

 

That's where Nick's pal and burgeoning artist Tony (Tom Chambers) enters the picture, who creates five convincing duplicates of the painting.  Meanwhile Tony's sister, Eve (Kate Ashfield) shops the knock-offs to various London art galleries before word spreads of their scam.
