Four working-class buddies and their strange visitor play poker one very long Christmas Eve. Only two of the players know how much is really at stake as the cards are dealt and Euros tossed into the pot. For most players a few dollars may be lost, but for one character much more is at stake. His knowledge, shared by the audience, is the source of this play's exciting drive to an unpredictable conclusion.
