Former pool hustler "Fast Eddie" Felson decides he wants to return to the game by taking a pupil. He meets talented but green Vincent Lauria and proposes a partnership. As they tour pool halls, Eddie teaches Vincent the tricks of scamming, but he eventually grows frustrated with Vincent's showboat antics, leading to an argument and a falling-out. Eddie takes up playing again and soon crosses paths with Vincent as an opponent.

It's 25 years after The Hustler when we find Eddie Felson has settled into a comfortable existence as a liquor salesman who has left pool behind him, but all that changes when he meets Vince Lauria (Tom Cruise), a dumb-as-a-box-of-rocks beast on the pool table and his smart and sexy girlfriend, Carmen (Mary Elizabeth Mastrontonio).
