Hotchfeld is the head collector for Salvatore Vorrato, one of the largest bookies in Los Angeles. Hotchfeld is masterful in the art of collection and practices with a distaste for the gambling junkie. Vorrato instructs Hotchfeld to take his nephew out on the job to prepare him for the business, but his disgruntled number one employee, Joe, has plans of his own. HOTCHFELD is a film about deceit, leaving the message, People can be lucky, but luck always ends. For everybody.
