Synopsis: Roy Dillon seems too handsome and well-mannered to be a professional con man. Lilly Dillon looks too young—and loves Roy a little too intensely—to be taken for his mother. Moira Langtry is getting too old to keep on living off the kindness of male strangers. And Carol Roberg seems too innocent to be acquainted with suffering.
