(mbc.net) Ben Campbell (Jim Sturgess) is a middle-class kid who's on the heels of graduating from MIT.  He's dreamt of attending medical school at Harvard and has even been accepted to the school; unfortunately, he can't afford the $300,000+ required to attend.

That's when he joins up with a crew of math whizzes who've mastered the art of counting cards.  Ben quickly amasses the money needed to attend Harvard after a few visits to Vegas, but his addiction to big money interferes with his academic pursuits.  Soon Ben is on the verge of losing everything he had worked his entire life to achieve.
