A must see

The end of civilized world has come; basic resources are now out of the human population's reach. This a futuristic story about technology advancing so much that it poisons the Earth's entire environment; sources of food are completely polluted. There is one corporation that invents a new, yet gruesome type of food, which causes a big problem for humans. Now, there is a question for humanity-- how far are we willing to go to stay alive a little more than others? A Sci-Fi story portrayed comically, Backgammon has a strong, interesting, and humorous plot recommended for anyone who enjoys post apocalyptic, science fiction, and/or futuristic movies. Although Backgammon is a small budget movie, the story is very original and captivating. My understanding about the game Backgammon is that it requires critical decision making, and it's all about how we roll the dice. The way we use the numbers makes all the difference. This movie shows that our lives are just like Backgammon, we don't know what's going to happen next-- it's up to how we play each hand.
