Tyler, holding up in his girlfriend Lisa's apartment, is back home from doing a prison bid, gather's his partners in crime for a spirited game of cards and to finally disburse the money from the very robbery that sent him away. Restless, Darrel grows increasingly impatient with each passing second he's not paid, adding heat to the red hot temperature that's already rising.
Tensions swell no matter how much their ringleader Mark attempts to temper his band of thieves and what starts out as a few friendly hands of poker, soon turns into complete carnage. The sultry night, coupled with pure greed is all to seductive - including the mild-mannered “new guy” Johnny, who gets caught in the melee that erupts in this small dank, inner city apartment.
As the cards fall, so do the bodies and the winner is the only one left standing. In the game of life, you have to play the hand you're dealt – or kill for the best hand.
