Inspired by a true story and set in 1975, Sam is a 42-year-old husband and father of two in the grip of a serious gambling addiction. Living on the edge of poverty in a northern mining town, Sam has been stoking the same blast furnace for ten years. When Sam loses his job; instead of admitting his failure to his wife Ruth, he chooses instead to chase his dream of traveling to Africa to open a drive-in theater, a scheme hatched years earlier in the navy.
Sam is equally desperate to support his family and keep his personal dream alive, almost destroying both with his compulsive gambling.
