Filmmaker Bryan Storkel examines the conflict between being a Christian and card counting gambler by following a group of devoutly religious Blackjack players who have made it their mission to bleed casinos dry. Pulling in an average of $100,000 a month in their first year alone, the churchgoing card sharks justify their wagering in a variety of different ways; while some claim that the extra income helps them to focus on their ministries, others see themselves a virtuous warriors waging a war on vice. Of course with so much cold hard cash at stake, it's only a matter of time before temptation enters the picture.
