Raised in New York by a father whose ideas about right and wrong are highly elastic, Sandie Donovan trains as a jewelry forger, thief and con artist, while developing her talent for disguises. On the run, she returns to Manhattan, where she discovers she can employ her acting and theatrical make-up talents for legitimate, as well as larcenous, ends. When she meets and falls in love with a film producer and inadvertently sets him up for an art robbery, Sandie’s conscience gets the better of her. She vows to return the stolen painting, even if it means making herself the target of the most dangerous fence in the city.
