Mark Gargano dies and awakes in a casino hotel, a purgatory where he is forced to gamble in order to survive. The winners can hope to achieve a form of paradise while the losers move on to the next stage of horrors. Will he turn completely ruthless and selfish enough to claw his way out, or will he learn that he must save others in order to save himself?
