The Main Story
David ( Woody Harrelson ) and Diana Murphy ( Demi Moore ) are a young married couple who buy a property and start building their dream home. The recession hits and money becomes scarce.
They desperately need $50,000 to stop their land from being repossessed, so they travel to Las Vegas in the hopes of winning the money.
David wins $25,000 at the craps table, and the pair of them are over the moon. However, the next day, they lose everything at the roulette table.
Diana catches the eye of Johan Gage ( Robert Redford ) , a billionaire who asks Diana to join him at the craps table for good luck. She does a winning dice roll on his $1 million bets, and the 3 spend the rest of the evening together at the casino.
At the end of the evening, Gage offers the couple $1 million to allow him to spend one night alone with Diana. The couple refuse his offer.
After a sleepless night, the Murphys finally agree to Gage’s proposal, and Diana spends the night with him.
The Murphys return home and find their land has already been foreclosed and sold. They start arguing about Gage and eventually reach breaking point, and they separate.
Gage and Diana get romantically involved, and Diana serves David with divorce papers. One day David attends a zoo benefit, and he sees his wife there with Gage. David donates the entire $1 million in a charity auction bid, makes his peace with Diana and signs the divorce papers.
Diana ends the relationship with Gage and goes to the pier where David originally proposed to her. He is sitting there, and they walk off together hand in hand.
