Christmas Eve, 1941.

On his last night in New York, a young grifter sets out to turn the table on those who shorted him before he leaves for the draft. Will he win or lose?

The handsome son of a high-class prostitute and the protégé of an expert con man, Jesse Garland knows what it takes to survive in a city like New York.

The cold, hard world shows mercy to no one. He could either fend for himself, or be fleeced by those even more unscrupulous than him.

The time has come to claim what he is owed, but an unexpected attack on Pearl Harbor shook the world. A swindler and a fraud all his life, the country now demands he answer the call of duty.

The future of his fate is about to change. Forever.

But before he leaves, he has a few scores to settle yet.

Find out what happens to Jesse in the city of dreams on the night of December 24, 1941.
