Mandy Patinkin stars as a former fireman whose life takes a turn when he picks up a disheveled gambler (James Spader) on the side of the road in this offbeat tale of fate. The two are forced to become slave-like laborers after losing a high-stakes poker game to a couple eccentric millionaires.

This film raises far more questions than it answers, but the characters and tone entrance. Also stars M. Emmet Walsh, Charles Durning and Joel Grey. Rated R.
