    • Synopsis
    • Praised by reviewers for its direction, “highly charged, acid-drenched visuals” and “noir-romantic emotions” (Variety, Chicago Reader). Sam is a professional gambler, living with a young woman nicknamed Princess that he picked up in the desert. Needing the rush of high stakes gambling to make himself feel alive, Sam uses Princess to place a dangerous bet – which he knows, and she doesn’t, that he can’t cover without manipulating his estranged son Jack to “borrow” from his ex-wife’s business. It’s a life or death bet for Sam and Princess – then the odds get worse when Princess, trying to protect Sam, bets against him – and Jack can’t come up with the money.
