    • Adam is a gambler who spends his time in casinos and gambling dens. He is anything but a common gambler though, he manipulates slot machines and uses the stolen money to square his father’s debts. His scheme begins to have problems when Ben, Adam’s sixteen- year-old son appears at his doorstep, out of the blue. Ben has broken all ties with his father and is living in a different city with his mother. But while we see them both try to patch it up and mutually accuse each other, we realize that drop-out, sociopath Ben is just looking for quick way to get cash and run away.
