A poker hustler, used to cheating his way to success, finally goes one step too far and loses his hand to a hardened criminal gang. He now faces a terrible ultimatum, pay the money he owes or loose a member of his own family. Can he out smart the gang, or has he totally underestimated them? A dark humoured thriller set against the gritty backdrop of the urban under-world, shows just how far desperate people will go to get what they want!
