Still image from the film A Bag of Hammers
Two charming grifters, Ben (Jason Ritter) and Alan (Jake Sandvig), have built a larcenous business posing as car valets, only to steal the vehicles instead of parking them. Because of their less-than-ideal upbringing and a “job” that allows them to remain likeable boyish rogues, their penchant for crime is almost forgivable. However, everything changes when they meet a 12-year-old boy named Kelsey. Neglected by his mother, Kelsey is drawn to Ben and Alan and they to him - and eventually, Kelsey becomes part mascot, part protégé. His presence ultimately forces Alan and Ben to choose between a life of carelessness and the opportunity to grow up and deal with the emotional consequences that come with it.
