Story


"Even Money" is a ferociously compelling drama that follows the lives of nine individuals as their fates become increasingly entwined in a web of addiction and gambling, culminating at one critical moment where their lives will be lost or reclaimed.

In "Even Money" there are no safe places, no one is left untouched - gamblers are mothers, brothers, dreamers and lovers. As the narrative unravels, we come to understand that addiction has no loyalty to race, age or life circumstances. Addiction is random, wreaking havoc on those individuals who are drawn into its seductive world of quick fixes and escapism, to those unsuspecting souls who are caught in its devastating wake.
