A drama surrounding a group of pool players as they try to advance up the rankings in their pool hall. There are multiple simultaneous stories, that show how the stress and anxiety of high stakes gambling can make or break you.
Gail had her tenth birthday party tonight, but her Dad was not there. She loves her dad, and he loves her. He had told her he was bringing her a special present, so why was he so late? Gail thought she knew what the present was; it must be that special custom pool cue she had wanted. Dad must have stopped to pick it up on his way home from work; maybe he stopped at Vicky's billiards to shoot a few games of 9-ball and lost track of time?

A good entertaining movie! even if you're not a pool nut!
I had a chance to watch this movie last night, and I must say I did enjoy it :) The plot line was good and kept me involved in the movie. I think Jennifer Barretta did a nice job on her role, but she really shined in the emotional scenes. Jennifer Butler did a tremendous job, as well. Kurt Hanover played a good "bad guy"
I also appreciate the job that all the other people did in the movie as well, even though of course you can tell that some of them were not pro actors or anything, I think they all did well and delivered their lines nicely. I loved hearing Allison Fishers accent!!
Overall I say good job to Main Street Productions! I understand the challenges in doing a 'pool movie' that would appeal to people besides pool players, and I think this one comes through with flying colors!
