Synopsis by Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez

This thriller follows William Tell (Oscar Isaac), an ex-serviceman trying his luck as a professional casino gambler. But after a chance meeting with an unpredictable young man named Cirk (Tye Sheridan) who is set on revenge against an old military colonel, William's trajectory changes. The two men hit the casino trail together with backing from a gambling financier named La Linda (Tiffany Haddish), trying to break into the World Series of Poker. However, it’s not long before Cirk’s erratic behavior forces William to face up to his dark past. Written and directed by Paul Schrader.
