Synopsis

Two rich friends, Jack Spiers and David Faulkner, are bored with their lives. They make a bet. Jack bets David that he can seduce any woman he wants, within a week.

David bets he can't. Jack wages his own life, against everything David owns; including a mysterious bag the contents of which, they refuse to discuss. Neither Jack nor David intend to go through with the bet, and both independently hire Vincent to help them to con the other. Vincent decides he will con them both, and hires Gudinski to help, but Gudinski is far more dangerous than he seems. They all get more than they bargained for.

The whole story is told in flashback by Jack to Amanda, on the last day when he pleads for her help. Each act is organised by character rather than chronology, resulting in very non linear film.
