When Jesse Christian, a mysterious biker, pulls up for the first time, a group of racetrack regulars are fascinated. Jesse seems to know the outcome of every race, and begins making a collection of career losers very rich.

They form a tight knit group that every day drinks together, wins together, spends their lives together. Jesse fits in right away, and his strange, quiet spiritualism begins to make many of them think he is much more than just a terrific gambler.

But the racetrack is full of con men and scam artists, and not everyone is convinced. And others want in on the winning. What starts as a group of lost souls finding their pot of gold soon evolves into a dark and twisted tale of organized crime, mysticism, jealousy and deep, dark secrets.

Secrets that could easily lead to a tragic end for everyone.
