Emily the Criminal

Emily is saddled with student debt and locked out of the job market due to a minor criminal record. Desperate for income, she takes a gig as a “dummy shopper,” buying goods with stolen credit cards supplied by a middleman named Youcef. Emily is soon seduced by the quick cash and illicit thrills of black-market capitalism, and increasingly interested in Youcef. Together, they plan to bring their business to the next level in Los Angeles.
