Synopsis

Lou is an aging numbers runner who barely scrapes out a living in Atlantic City, but still dreams of being a big player in organized crime. He has been having an affair with a gangster's widow for years, but has fallen for his much younger neighbor Sally, a casino waitress. When Sally's ex-husband comes into town with a large amount of stolen cocaine that he intends to sell, the gangsters he stole it from quickly show up and murder him. Lou now has the drugs and the gangsters are after Sally to keep her quiet, so Lou finally has his chance to make it in the bigtime and come to the rescue of the woman he loves.
