      Two orphaned twin brothers, John and Jeremiah, are separated at the age of 14. They grow up radically different: Jeremiah goes to a seminary and becomes a priest, and John chooses the life of crime, specializing in all kinds of con jobs. Another difference is that Jeremiah thinks John dead, but John knows that his brother is alive.

      John ends up in jail; as he serves his term, he re-thinks his life and wants to start over when he gets


      out. However, when he is released, his older friend and mentor, Rome, starts pushing him into doing a million dollar con � one last time.

      Jeremiah reluctantly agrees, but he sees that the con is too risky, and he does not want to go to jail again. He decides to double cross Rome.

      Rome finds out, and Jeremiah ends up on the run. Having nobody else to go to, he turns for help to his brother, the priest.

      Rome tracks ...


      • John down but mistakenly kidnaps Jeremiah, the twin. The brothers switch roles: John tries living Jeremiah�s life, pretending to be a priest and even dating his girlfriend, and Jeremiah is forced by Rome to finish the con (a counterfeiting scam).

        Unexpectedly, Jeremiah discovers a new, darker side of himself; he sees that he can be violent. Once, he almost beats a man to death.

        He probably could have �fit in� if he wanted� Meanwhile, John is having trouble posing as

        the priest. His brother�s girlfriend notices the change; another trouble is Tex, Jeremiah�s ever-watchful friend who is a policeman.

        So when Jeremiah escapes from Rome�s clutches, John is more than ready to join forces with him. The story may start as somewhat predictable, but it is filmed well and it holds your attention.

        Both brothers are believable, and so are the changes they undergo. Secondary characters are also well developed.

        Despite the criminal themes, the movie is clean. There is some violence, but virtually no bad language.
