Dam (short for Amsterdam) is an anglophile living in Boston who speaks with an English accent to conceal his stuttering. He works under cover of a legitimate art brokerage stealing art for a living-art that had previously been stolen, so the "owners" do not report his thefts. When dramatic events bring about the dissolution of management of the brokerage and the girl he met on a brief trip to England appears in Boston, Dam is forced to rethink his life and how it fits with those for whom he cares.
