Blackmail. Murder. And back to life in the RV.
The Malloys, after successfully passing themselves off as "The Riches" in season 1, a yuppie family living in suburban America, face big trouble in Season 2.
Wayne Malloy tries to clean up the mess in Eden Falls while his con artist family hits the road. But the Malloys find the old pleasures of the road and the Traveler way of life hard to come by.
Dahlia and the kids Cael, Di Di and Sam don't feel like professional cons anymore. They got used to life in Eden Falls and are now lost and unsteady when forced to live by their wits.
When Wayne raises the possibility of returning to pull off one Last Great Con that could earn them enough money to stop running and conning forever, the Malloys decide to roll the dice.
Wayne's attempt to protect his family while continuing his quest to steal the American Dream proves to be more challenging than the Malloys could ever suspect.
(Both seasons aired exclusively on M-Net on Sundays after the 8pm movie, around 22h00)
