Jack is a former jeweller who made his living buying and selling diamonds via
late-night TV ads. He lives in a rather luxurious, privately-owned retirement
home along with his fellow residents: the visually challenged techno-wizard Rose,
the artistically gifted but forgetful Flora, and the narcoleptic beauty Blanche.
Unbeknownst to the four of them, however, the man to whom they’ve entrusted
their life savings - a smooth-talking financial advisor named Barney Effward -
has been arrested for bilking his clients out of their savings through a Ponzi
scheme. Faced with financial ruin, the four suddenly find themselves
confronting the author of their miserable fate when Effward is unexpectedly
delivered among them – along with several million dollars in diamonds.
Pandemonium ensues as the four retirees try to find a way to exact their revenge,
 recoup their losses, and keep the authorities from discovering their plans.

“Jack of Diamonds” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
