    • Synopsis
    • There’s a dark side behind the bright lights of Las Vegas, where desperate lives and busted dreams struggle in the shadows to survive. And when a sleazy casino owner (Eric Roberts of The Dark Knight and The Expendables) swipes $20 million from his employees’ health insurance and pension funds, ex-pro-baseball-player-turned-casino-electrician Nick (Ethan Landry) and his co-workers put together a daring plan to steal the money back. But in a lowdown town of underground cage fights, smoky strip clubs and deadly double-crosses, can the perfect heist ever go as planned? Antonio Fargas (Foxy Brown, Starsky & Hutch), Anabella Casanova, Eloy Méndez and Krissy Terry co-star in this suspense thriller with a twist from Executive Producer Roger Corman.
