When Scott and Kate Johansen’s daughter gets into the college of her dreams it’s cause for celebration.

With the help of their friend and neighbour Frank (Jason Mantzoukas)—also in need of a major payday—they decide to open an illegal casino in his suburban house, risking everything together on a Vegas-style bacchanal where money flows, inhibitions are checked at the door, and all bets are off.
