Chance of a Lifetime is about a place in time when larger-than-life people like political boss Enoch "Nucky" Johnson and supersmooth 500 Club owner Paul "Skinny" D'Amato grabbed fame and power and rode waves of popularity. They built a city on sin as a matter of civic pride and saw no contradiction whatsoever.
Only in Atlantic City, and only in this shining era, could such men have seized the opportunity to influence politics and entertainment, the two main realms that to this day characterize the Queen of Resorts.
"Atlantic City was Las Vegas. This town was wide open." - Skinny D'Amato
