Connie is a middle-aged woman and former three-time Olympic gold medalist, however, her financial state is in disarray. Not only that but she isn’t able to birth to a child because of fertility issues. By expensive treatment, Connie manages to get pregnant, however, the child suffers the fate of death.
A depressed and dejected Connie breaks down and his husband Rick’s work schedule doesn’t help her either. However, she has a best friend in JoJo, and together, both of them start collecting coupons. One day, Connie writes a letter to a cereal company and complains about the product. In return, they send her a coupon.
She devises a plan to sell these coupons for a lesser price and start making money. However, JoJo believes that writing letters to the company for coupons won’t be a feasible idea. Instead, they can start selling these coupons online.
The duo of friends reached Mexico to meet with the workers of the Advanced Solutions printing facility that prints coupons. Via Alejandra, they learn that some of the coupons get left and destroyed. The duo decides to smuggle these coupons to the USA and then sell them for a low price.
As their business grows, it catches the sniff of higher authorities. Ken, who is a coupon expert tries to crack down on the group. He tries to contact the FBI for the case, however, they term it as a mundane one and don’t get involved. With the business soaring, it doesn’t take much time for Connie to become a millionaire.
To turn their dirty money into a clean one, the group decided to buy and sell cars and guns. Not only that, but Connie also applied for more expensive fertility treatment. Simon, a US postal officer got in contact with Ken to catch the Queenpins.
He ordered a coupon via the website to track their base location. When it arrived, they found that Queenpins were situated in Phoenix. Without wasting any time, the duo reached there and arrested Connie and Jojo.
Connie accepted her crimes and stated that she did it all to bring something unconventional into her life. Not only that, but she was selling the feeling of using coupons to the people. Ken understood her idea but Simon didn’t agree with him.
He is a stern man and wouldn’t bend the rules for anyone. Because of Connie’s confession, Jojo only faced 10 days in jail. During the court trial, Connie’s lawyer also managed to bring the jail time of Connie down to only 11 months.
