Confidence man – a person who swindles others by means of a confidence game. Dako (NAGASAWA Masami), Boku-chan (HIGASHIDE Masahiro), Richard (KOHINATA Fumiyo), and Igarashi (KOTE Shinya) are professional con men whose ambitions are larger than life and reach far beyond Japan. Setting their sights on a legendary diamond said to be in the possession of ruthless Hong Kong mafia queen, Ran Riu (TAKEUCHI Yuko), they attempt a heist using their best abilities. However, when a new player enters the game – the devilishly handsome conman, Jessie (MIURA Haruma), who is after the ‘Ice Princess’ Ran himself – their best laid plans may be derailed. Throw a Japanese yakuza (EGUCHI Yosuke) with a personal grudge into the mix, and the story really picks up the pace! Who will win the game in the end?

As hilarious as it is entertaining, this dizzying tale of con men, mobsters, and a grand heist, with a dash of personal intrigue, is sure to delight the whole family! An original story adapted from the hit TV drama series of the same name.
