Set in the fast-paced world of thoroughbred horseracing, the story tells of a high stakes deception and the price paid for a friendship bound by betrayal. Having made a career out of playing the odds, best friends Lyle Carter (Jeff Bridges) and Vinnie Webb (Nick Nolte), and Vinnie's then-girlfriend, Rosie (Sharon Stone), hatch a plan to execute the ultimate score. But the plan goes awry when Lyle and Rosie run off with their take. Partners in crime, the three find themselves bound by a secret and yet divided by a betrayal of the heart. Twenty years later, Vinnie is back to settle the score and not even he realizes that they will all pay for their deception. This psychological thriller is based on Sam Shepard's play and marks the feature film debut of British theatre director Matthew Warchus.
