Synopsis

Kailey, a small town pool hustler in upstate New York, ekes out a living playing poker, periodically driving into Manhattan to check up on her mentor, Quinn, who runs Quinn's, a hardcore pool hall. Kailey is determined to raise $50,000 to wrest her son Gulley, who she was forced to give up at birth, from the toxic clutches of her alcoholic ex-husband David and his domineering mother and move to Canada for a better life. In order to win the money, Kailey must score a match with the best player at Quinn's, Duncan. With this as her only hope for a future with her son, Kailey starts to play and the stakes have never been higher.
