This dream appears as a box score from a game yet to be played. Oddsmakers traverse Las Vegas to the crossroads of sports and gambling from where they must forge a path to the rainbows end. But Las Vegas is on the verge of a disappearing act worthy of Siegfried and Roy. The information age and corporate takeover of the City raise the odds against them. Odds grow longer when their demons threaten to turn the dream into a nightmare. Can the oddsmakers overcome and become oddsbreakers too? Does their odyssey have consequences for the integrity of the game?
