Synopsis

Beth Raymer leaves behind her life as a stripper in Florida and heads to Las Vegas to realize her dream: being a cocktail waitress in a glitzy casino. But, when her career goals don't pan out, she falls in with Dink, a kind and idiosyncratic sports gambler. Beth wins Dink's admiration when she shows herself to be something of a gambling prodigy, but she also wins the ire of Dink's wife, Tulip, when her relationship with her boss seems to extend beyond the professional.
