Overview

A woman struggles to win back the son she lost when she divorced her husband in a gritty drama that marks the directorial debut of actor Chris Eigeman. Kailey Famke Janssen is a woman who makes her living playing high-stakes poker and hustling pool, a trade she learned from her longtime friend Quinn Rip Torn. Kailey's rough-and-tumble life drove a wedge between her and her husband, David Matt Ross, and when they split up he won custody of their son, Gulley Jaymie Dornan. However, while David was seemingly the sober and respectable one in their relationship, in truth he's a heavy drinker whose life is controlled by his wealthy, bullying mother, Abigail Lois Smith. Gulley is unhappy living with David, and unbeknown to his father the boy has been corresponding with Kailey as they plan to start a new life together in Canada. However, Kailey is unable to get legitimate papers for herself and her son, so she heads to New York City to raise the 50,000 dollars she'll need to get passports on the black market. Turn the River also stars Marin Hinkle, John Juback, and Terry Kinney.
