The sickness hot, a master quit, for fear,
His house in town, and left one servant there;
Ease him corrupted, and gave means to know
A Cheater, and his punk; who now brought low,
Leaving their narrow practice, were become
Cozeners at large; and only wanting some
House to set up, with him they here contract,
Each for a share, and all begin to act.
Much company they draw, and much abuse,
In casting figures, telling fortunes, news, Selling of flies, flat bawdry with the stone,
Till it, and they, and all in fume are gone.
In 1890s London, three con artists intend to cheat the wealthy and greedy with a con involving alchemy and the Philosopher's Stone. As their schemes and mockery of their marks become more absurd, will their deceit get found out, or will they manage to conjure the elusive Philosopher's Stone?
