The story of hard-core villain Danny "The Dealer" Dempsey, who awakes one morning, in his heavily secured home, to find a letter resting on his pillow. The dealer is totally bewildered how it got there, as there are no signs of an intruder or a break in. The mystery of who the letter is from (and what it contains) is something the dealer will not share, even with his closest friends or his very dear sister Sally .
The Dealer, normally a clear headed lateral thinker, is suddenly behaving totally out of character, and so begins the strangest 24 hours any one has ever witnessed from him. A crazy day unfolds in which he succeeds in ruining his sister's wedding, disrupting other gangland leaders and turning his hand to gambling on ludicrous bets. Slowly but surely, the dealer is dangerously offending and taunting everyone around him.
Could The Dealer be on the brink of self-destruction? Or will he somehow succeed in saving his own skin at the final hour, while revealing to all the secrets of the letter that has clearly been dictating his bizarre behaviour?
