Ben Campbell (Jim Sturgess) wants to go to Harvard Medical school, but he can't afford the $300,000 he needs to get there. When his math professor at M.I.T., Micky Rosa (Kevin Spacey) approaches him with a quick way to make a lot of money, Ben decides to go for it. He joins a secret group of five students who, using their incredible math skills and undercover hand signals, manages to rake in the cash playing blackjack. Ben's plan is to make enough to pay for tuition then get out, but he soon gets corrupted by greed and power, endangering the professor and his fellow students. Meanwhile, a vicious casino security officer named Cole Williams (Lawrence Fishbourne) has it out for Rosa and the kids - for more reasons than counting cards.
