Written and directed by Paul Schrader, the movie follows William Tell (Oscar Isaac), a gambler and former serviceman who sets out to reform a young man (Tye Sheridan) whoʼs seeking revenge on a mutual enemy from their past (Willem Dafoe).

Gaining backing from mysterious gambling financier La Linda, Tell takes Cirk with him on the road, going from casino to casino until the unlikely trio set their sights on winning the World Series of poker in Las Vegas.
