Film synopsis: 
A six degree of separation story, where Ponzi scheme's, drug dealing, and money laundering all meet in a disloyal world of betrayals. Thomas, a white collar Ponzi schemer has a particular way to meet his clients, or better put his prey. A very charming good looking man, well spoken with kind manners betrays his clients with false promises of very good returns on their investments. Thomas runs into problems when he can’t back up his promises any longer. In order to keep his schemes going he needs to do something else to get more cash, and nothing better than money laundering. Thomas creates a money laundering system based on fake donations to different “Charities” all over Manhattan. With the help of his best friend, Al Genovesse, an associate of a prominent Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, Thomas is introduced to the underworld of business fraud and Mafia bosses. One of Al's referrals is Johnny Bramanti, a film producer who runs into trouble when a mafia boss, Michael Dileo, asks him to clean twenty million dollars from a drug deal. Johnny tries to refuse Michael’s offer as a silent partner in his movie business, telling him he needs to “think about it.” Very upset and violent, Michael reminds Johnny that ten years ago he helped him with some money to start his Sexy Films Production, and without “thinking “The money was ready to help. Johnny is literally against the wall and has no other alternative than to help Michael and clean the twenty million dollars for the sake of his life. Johnny wants to nail Michael but he has no proof; the money laundering won’t be enough because he knows that Michael has the best lawyers and always walks free of any charges at the increasing frustration of the DA’S office. Johnny’s only possibility comes when Michael wants to have his young mistress and prisoner, Brigitte, as a star in one of his movies. Johnny uses her to find the proof he needs to put Michael away for good. Her desperate pursuits of the evidence that will make her free, becomes very far reaching and looks more like an impossible task. Frustrated, she tries to escape, but, it proves an unsuccessful move.
