The movie follows newlyweds Muriel (Edgar-Jones) and Lee (Poulter) who are “beginning a bright new life when he returns from the Korean War. However, this newfound stability is upended by the arrival of Lee’s charismatic younger brother, Julius (Elordi), a wayward gambler with a secret.”
“A dangerous love triangle is quickly formed, as the three vow to start a new life together in California, but their bid for the American Dream is blown apart when Julius disappears and heads for Las Vegas instead,” the description continues. “Muriel embarks on a secret life of her own, gambling on racehorses and discovering a love she never thought possible.”
Film Updates reports that when Julius finds himself in Las Vegas, he meets Henry (Calva), a blackjack artist, and says “Henry and Julius’ love burns in the shadows until Henry is forced to flee.”
