The famous screenwriter Aaron Sorkin ('Moneyball', 'The Social Network', 'Steve Jobs') makes his directorial debut moving to the big screen memories of Molly Bloom, a professional ex-skier at the end of the decade of the 2000 ended up being known as "poker princess" in Los Angeles. Bloom organized clandestine high stakes poker games frequenting magnates, athletes and Hollywood stars like Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Ben Affleck for eight years. Finally it was investigated by the FBI, who followed the tracks of their criminal activities to give chase in a raid which involved up to 17 agents.
