Old Dolio Dyne carries out petty thefts in Los Angeles with her parents Robert and Theresa, who seems incapable of showing her a shred of warmth and compassion. The family divides the spoils of each underhand scheme but fails to pay the rent on a squalid apartment, which acts as a base of operations. A bright and bubbly outsider called Melanie gate-crashes the clan’s hand-to-mouth existence, hoping to learn the tricks of the con trade.
