David Staebler is a sullen radio personality who reconnects with his scheming brother, Jason, in Atlantic City, N.J. A fast-talking con man, Jason is traveling with the beautiful Sally and her stepdaughter, Jessica, and attempts to rope David into a deal involving a tropical island resort. While David initially humors his ne'er-do-well sibling, Jason isn't happy when his brother tries to rain on his parade.
