Its a story about a professor called Barnes who got a 40.000$ debt. Thats why he recruits 3 students Elyse (Katharine Isabelle), Scott and George and teaches them the art of card counting. Its really fun to watch the friendship of 3 totally different people to grow so fast, watch them getting better and better in card counting and winning all the money.
The reason i watched this movie was because of Katharine Isabelle (favorite actress) but in the first minutes of the movie i saw that this is going to be fun because i always liked movies about casinos, money and this kinda cheating. Its not so popular probably because its a TV movie and made in Canada (No offense or anything) but it should be.
If you get the chance to see this awesome movie than do it!
