Lying is part of life, right? In order to survive and get by, we all need to tell a few white lies … but how far is too far? What would you be willing to do and say to save your family? SCAM is a gritty crime thriller that follows Vincent (25), a silver-tongued charismatic phone scammer, and Clarence (72), an isolated man filled with shame after losing his life savings. In an attempt to save his family, Vincent goes too far and picks the wrong target for a telephone scam. A film that explores the seedy underbelly of telephone cons and the lowlifes who perpetrate them, SCAM is a story about the delicate relationship between fathers and sons, and the need for redemption for past mistakes.
