Lottery Play

Lottery-PlayWhat would happen if you won the lottery and then lost the lottery, and then won the lottery again…all on the same card?

Bob Sherman is the owner of a small carpet cleaning business which is long on laughs and short on profit. After Bob scratches off a winning state lottery card, he prepares to claim the big prize, but a mishap destroys the card, spurring schemes of desperation. When a way appears to revive the card back to life, Bob and his family must reconcile if winning it all is truly the American Dream.

And what happens next is anyone’s luck.
