Steven Russell is a happily married police officer, churchgoer and upstanding citizen of his local community. One day, a car accident dramatically snaps him out of this average existence. Steven realises that he is gay and embarks on a flamboyant and extravagant new lifestyle.
He turns to conmanship to pay for his luxurious new life, and eventually finds himself in prison for fraud. There he falls in love with the sweet-natured and sensitive Phillip Morris, and channels his powers of ingenuity and daredevilry into his plan to escape jail and build the perfect life with Phillip.
