Pendleton "Penny" Wise, a talented telemarketer who can sell most anything over the phone, is making a fine living doing phone sales until the company he's employed by goes bankrupt. Penny is approached by Caitlin Carlson who is hiring telephone salesmen for Kelly Grant. Grant is a legend in telemarketing, yet not always for honest reasons, and Penny is unsure if Grant's latest venture, selling shares in a gold mine, is legit.
