Romeo and Samson Griggs are two brothers who live in the desert. Left at birth in the will of fate, and growing up without any purpose in life, these brainless young men, survive by gambling and hustling. When a mysterious woman threatens to repo their much beloved houseboat, Prickface and Poor Boy, as they are nicknamed by the locals, cook up the biggest theft yet. With the goal of making enough money for moving to California, the brothers are planning to leave behind their miserable lives once for all.
