It's in the Air


Category: Comedy
Con men Calvin Churchill and Clip McGurk know how to fix a horse-race or boxing match…but can they get themselves out of their current fix? Calvin wants to go straight and win back his estranged wife, but first the two sharpies must dodge a dogged IRS agent and bilk a bunch of aviation investors out of the backing boodle for a balloon excursion into the stratosphere.
