Pendleton "Penny" Wise, a talented telemarketer who can sell almost anything over the phone, makes a fine living doing phone sales until the company that employs him goes bankrupt. Penny is approached by Caitlin Carlson, who is hiring telephone salesmen for Kelly Grant, a legend in telemarketing, but Penny is unsure if Grant's latest venture, selling shares in a gold mine, is legitimate.
