Storyline

Twenty suburban neighbors who played tho lottery together for years suddenly win a fortune working out at $19,000,000 each. Yet is also brings huge problems for many. Sean is a fugitive after an accident, so he offers lawyer Zoe half to cash his share, but she and his past shower misery over him time and again. Peter convinces a few others to take charge of the town's nearly bankrupt bicycle factory. Peter's wife Nina betrays him for partner Cameron, whose marriage to Beth also shatters over her child-wish. Minor Damien leaves home spending big, but ends up married to illegal Russian gold-digger Galina, who attracts all kinds of trouble. One share is disputed as Sunny claims it instead of a regular player. Written by KGF Vissers

too many characters and everybody has a problem
6 November 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Various friends and neighbors attend a party where people contribute a dollar to play the lottery. Sean Mathers works at a flower shop and hiding as a fugitive. He's invited by his boss Beth Walsh and her husband Cameron who are planning to move away for his new job. Peter and Nina Schaefer seems to have a happy family but she's cheating with Cameron who was her ex. Maggie is an overworked struggling nurse. Teen Damien adds a buck at the convenient store. Nina plays Cameron's birth date which ends up winning $386 million. Addie fights with her husband who she's in the process of divorcing. They have teen daughter Frankie. Struggling single mom Kimberly George delivered a pizza and added the extra dollar. Sean does a deal with lawyer Zoe Reida for her to claim the winnings and split the money. She fears his fake identity, a murder, and creepy Jeremy from his past. Damien is underage and can't collect for another ten months. He decides to marry his father's annoying friend's mail-order Russian bride Galina and move away from his disapproving father. Former student Elisa claims to have a baby with Cameron. Sunny van Hattem claims Kimberly's share threatening to tie up everybody's payout. Zoe goes missing and her sister Tally searches for her.

There are way too many characters and everybody has a problem. There is too much going on. It's bad soap and quite frankly whiny. Some of the rich people problems come off as annoying. Some of them are doing down right stupid stuff which gets really frustrating. What's with the baby kidnapping? With so many story lines, it becomes a waste of time waiting to follow the particular characters that one finds appealing. It gets tiresome and got canceled after 13 episodes.
