After 25 years of a golden life as gigolo to an older millionaire lady, 46-year-old Alex is dumped for a younger man and left to face reality without a penny. Homeless, he turns to his estranged, hard-working younger sister Sarah and her geeky son Hugo, and begs them to let him move in.
After a disastrous attempt at finding a real job, Alex makes it his mission to return to a life of luxury, and honor his lifelong promise to “be rich without working.” Having found his next mark in the fabulously wealthy and very widowed grandmother of Hugo’s school crush Eva, Alex teaches his nephew a few of his smooth lady-magnet moves. The plan is to get Hugo invited to Eva’s birthday party, so that Uncle Alex can work his magic. A seemingly perfect opportunity that could end up ruining Alex’s budding relationship with his family. Is Alex just a gigolo, after all?
