Storyline: Lucky is a gambling addict whose dream is to get-rich-quick. When he falls prey to a tax scam, his already precarious financial situation – which he’s kept secret from his wife, Noël – becomes much much worse. Lucky attempts to remake the money through loan sharks, favours from his old gang affiliates, and gambling, but he’s eventually sussed out by his daughter, Tina. As a point of pride, Lucky rejects Tina’s offers of assistance, and his subsequent bad choices and bad luck cumulate with Noël discovering Lucky’s duplicity. Much later, at Tina’s graduation ceremony, the inevitable downfall of events have taken their course. Although Tina is financially weighed down by parents, she’s achieved some independence. Lucky and Noël are are no longer together, but on the road to stability. In the end, all three have learned something: life goes on no matter what.
