Synopsis

An ex-Las Vegas showgirl and single mother living in Reno works part-time in a gift store to put herself through college and raise her diabetic son. By night she leads a secret life, cruising the strip and turning tricks to supplement her meager income. When she is violently beaten during a disastrous "business" transaction with a high roller one night, her life begins a downward spiral. She is fired from her job and blacklisted from every casino in town. Stripped of her dignity and all her resources, she initially seeks revenge, but eventually finds the strength to move on with her life.
