Getting rid of his debts sets in motion a sequence of events for Ronald that may lead to salvation or downfall.
Ronald is a detective with a plan to get rid of his gambling debt. He enlists two petty criminals to rob an illegal poker tournament he's taking part in, providing him with a perfect alibi. Quick, simple and non-violent, the plan is foolproof… until people start getting killed.
But his partners take off with the money, and to make matters worse his police colleagues now suspect him of the robbery. Ronald is all-in… holding the worst hand of his life.
