Atlantic City. 1988: Jonny and Rebecca are very much in love and very much in debt. He’s a struggling singer-songwriter (who spends most of his time playing backup for Annie, a cabaret performer at the Oasis Casino Hotel Resort) she works part-time at the casino and for a local charity. They struggle to make ends meet but they’re happy and that’s enough. Or is it? When wealthy stranger Larry Harris arrives in town and offers Rebecca a million dollars to spend a night with him, will the lure of money outweigh the promise of fidelity? Will Rebecca accept Larry’s indecent proposal? Will her marriage survive if she doesn’t? Will Jonny stick around if she does?
