Faced with destitution after his online gambling scheme goes south, an Ivy League student heads to Costa Rica to confront the man he believes responsible for his downfall.

Richie, a Princeton graduate student swindled out of his tuition money by an online gambling enterprise, decides to venture out to Costa Rica to confront site operator Ivan Block over his calamity. Taken in by Block's overtures to join his firm and enjoy immense wealth, a disturbing secret learned about the tycoon's past compounded by a pursuit at the hands of the FBI sends Richie on a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game as he attempts to outmaneuver both parties' forces.
