"A Bag of Hammers" revolves around the friendship of two charming grifters, Ben and Alan, played by Jason Ritter and Jake Sandvig. Ben and Alan have built a successful - though larcenous - business, posing as car valets, only to steal the vehicles instead of parking them. Because of their less-than-ideal childhoods and a “job” that allows them to remain likeable boyish rogues well into their 20’s, their penchant for crime is almost forgivable. However, everything changes when they meet a twelve-year-old boy named Kelsey. Neglected by his mother, Kelsey is drawn to Ben and Alan - and they to him - and eventually, Kelsey becomes part mascot, part protégé. His presence ultimately forces Alan and Ben to choose between a life of crime and fun (almost an extended childhood), and the opportunity to grow up and face the emotional consequences of being true adults.
