Summary: A conniving father and daughter meet up with the heir to a brewery fortune-- a wealthy but naïve snake enthusiast-- and attempt to bamboozle him at a cruise ship card table. Their plan is quickly abandoned when the daughter falls in love with their prey. But when the heir gets wise to her gold-digging ways, she must plot to re-conquer his heart.
