Fast Company

FAST COMPANY

by CARLA CHING
directed by BRIAN BALCOM

November 8 - 24, 2019

 

Mable Kwan is the best grifter that ever lived. She taught her sons H and Francis to be the best roper and fixer around. When her youngest daughter Blue puts together the con of the decade, will they get in on the action together or will one of them walk away with it all? It’s a show of smoke and mirrors, but underneath all the grifting and game theory is a provoking story about redemption, perseverance, destiny, and teamwork.
