Nathan Detroit, the fixer of New York’s longest established floating crap game, is feeling the heat on all sides. The cops are bearing down on him, his clientele have full wallets and itchy dice fingers, and his fiancee is demanding a wedding that’s been 14 years in the making.
Desperate for cash to arrange his next game, Nathan makes a sucker bet with travelling high-roller Sky Masterson: woo the leader of the local save-a-soul mission, or lose $1000. Both gambler and fixer get more than they bargained for when love and the law start to close in on their games and the stakes start to rise heavenward.
