American Buffalo immerses the audience into a dusty pawn shop, crammed full of bits and pieces of forgotten artifacts from times past. Lording over the memorabilia is Don, who has enlisted his ex-junkie protégé Bobby, and long-time associate and veteran grifter, Teach, to help him steal a valuable buffalo head nickel.  The heist acts as a catalyst to bring into question the hustlers’ loyalty to each other as well as their status in their imagined crime world; where enterprise is equivalent to scam.
