Neurotic con man Roy suffers from several emotional problems, including obsessive-compulsive disorder. He and his partner Frank swindle people out of money. Frank wants to pull a really big job, but Roy is too consumed with fear and panic attacks to join him. Only cigarettes and his trusty illegal prescription drugs seem to keep him going. When Roy finds himself in desperate need of more pills, he is forced to see legitimate psychotherapist Dr. Klein. Roy discovers he has a daughter from his previous marriage and Dr. Klein suggests Roy spend time with her
