MIDDLE CLASS MILLIONAIRES

SYNOPSIS:
A GROUP OF MIDDLE CLASS, SUBURBIA FRIENDS GATHER ON THE NORMALLY QUIET CUL-DE-SAC TO DISCUSS THE DAILY GOINGS ON OF THEIR LIVES AND NEIGHBORHOOD. THREE MEN DISCUSS A RECENT NEWS STORY ABOUT HOW A PRICELESS PAINTING WAS RECENTLY STOLEN FROM A MUSEUM AND THE CULPRITS WERE BELIEVED TO BE HIDING OUT IN THE AREA WAITING TO UNLOAD THE PAINTING TO A BLACK-MARKET DEALER.

THE MUSEUM IS OFFERING A $3 MILLION REWARD FOR ITS SAFE RETURN, NO QUESTIONS ASKED. THE MEN HAVE A CLUE AS TO WHERE THE PAINTING MAY BE HID AND CONSPIRE TO STEAL IT FROM THE CROOKS IN ORDER TO CLAIM THE REWARD.

THE WOMEN ARE ALSO DISCUSSING THE NEWS REPORT AND UNBEKNOWNST TO THE MEN, THEY TOO ARE CONSPIRING TO STEAL THE PAINTING. NEITHER GROUP WANTS THE OTHER TO KNOW FOR FEAR OF RIDICULE AND BECAUSE THEY EACH HAVE THEIR OWN PLANS FOR THE REWARD MONEY.

AS EACH GROUP MAKE THEIR PLANS, THEY ARE CLUELESS THAT THEY MAY COME HEAD TO HEAD AS EACH OTHER’S ADVERSARIES.

MEANWHILE, THE ACTUAL CROOKS ARE MAKING THEIR PLANS TO RETRIEVE THE HIDDEN PAINTING IN ORDER TO SELL IT ON THE BLACK MARKET.
