'The Ticket' is the story of Esperanza, who buys a Lotto ticket. That same day, she returns home to discover that her father is very sick. Esperanza forgets about the ticket. We soon find out Esperanza picked the winning numbers, though she doesn't know. She takes a job as a waitress at a strip club, but when she discovers her father needs surgery, we wonder how far she is willing to go. The winning ticket is constantly in danger of being lost, stolen or destroyed. Will Esperanza lose the ticket and never claim her winnings? Will she lose her self and never again be whole? This question becomes one and the same in "The Ticket."
