    • Synopsis
    • A Filmmaker comes across the legend of Lucky Joe, a man known for winning every game of chance, and finds him homeless on the streets of London.
      Numbers-obsessed Joe is in trouble. A violent thug is after him for an unpaid £200 debt. His estranged daughter doesn’t want to know him. Omens and magical thinking rule his life.
      Wanting to test his luck, the Filmmaker persuades Joe to play the lottery.
      Joe's “winning formula” is to convince 10 out of 20 strangers to each give him £20 for a share in the £110million jackpot.
      In his frantic quest to gain people’s trust, Joe realizes how much he wants to make his daughter proud and win her back.
      When the numbers appear to line up, he begins to hope. But the road to redemption is beset with rules that must be followed, truths that must be told, and an uncontrollable fear of the number 6.
      It’s Joe’s day of reckoning. Will the faith of others change his fate?
