Synopsis

Comedy drama starring Dominique Swain and Michael Madsen. From a very young age, Alicia 'Ace' Anderson (Swain) became an expert Texas hold-em poker player under the tutelage of her beloved father, Seal (Madsen). Now, years after Seal's tragic death in a car accident, Ace enters medical school and finds herself struggling with the rigorous training and her worsening financial situation. In order to raise enough money to pay her escalating tuition fees, Ace draws on her formidable poker skills, putting together a team of players to try and win the World Series of poker. But as the stakes continue to rise, Ace comes to realise what her father taught her: in order to really live, you need to go all in.
