Professional gambler Jack Pozzi (James Spader) hitches a lift with a retired fireman (Mandy Patinkin) after being kicked out of a poker game. Desperate to raise $10,000 for another game, scheduled for the following day with two retired millionaires, Pozzi persuades the fireman to front up the money and the two of them drive to their opponents' Pennsylvanian mansion. However, Pozzi's luck deserts him, and in order to pay off the debts they have incurred, the pair agree to build a wall in the house's grounds... Based on the labyrinthine novel by Paul Auster, who makes a cameo appearance.
