Abstract:

Beyond the bright lights and casinos lies the real Las Vegas, where four lives will be brought together by one split-second choice. In the pre-dawn hours, a woman's marriage crumbles with a single confession. Across town, an immigrant family struggles to get by in the land of opportunity. Three thousand miles away, a soldier wakes up in hospital with the vague feeling he's done something awful. In a single moment, these disparate lives intersect, blinded by a life-changing catastrophe. Faced with seemingly insurmountable loss, each person must decide whether to give in to despair, or find the courage and resilience to rise.
