SYNOPSIS:
A dark room. Filled with smoke. Two men sit across from each other at a table, locked in a heads up poker game. The entry: 20,000. The winnings: 100,000 dollars. Zach, a rebellious college student, finds himself gambling in order to make enough money to stay in school to graduate. But when he places a bet with the wrong bookie, more than just his future is at stake. He is pitted against Mr. Green, a seasoned veteran who seems to know his every move. Every hand is a rollercoaster ride putting him closer to blowing it or making the one play that will win it all. He quickly realizes that no matter what, in poker and in life, it’s always a gamble.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:
ZACH: male or female, 17-23
A rebellious college student with a gambling problem, he desperately needs to win the tournament for reasons that he does not want to reveal. While young, he is an experienced player who is brilliant at math. If he has a weakness at cards, it is that he doesn’t take enough chances with sub-par cards.

MR. GREEN: male or female, middle aged
An older regular card player and a self made man who makes his money from his own construction company. He plays loose and fast, and just like Zach needs to win for reasons that he does not want to reveal.
*NOTE: Both male and female actors are encouraged to try out for the above roles

MR. HESTER: male, 18+
Another regular poker player. He wears sunglasses and doesn’t speak at the table. Never. He drinks what appears to be a vodka tonic, but it could easily just be club soda.

DEALER: male, 18+
The dealer of the poker game. He maintains order in a game of very high stakes and tempers.
