As a filmmaker, I've never really had a 9 to 5 job. That may sounds pretty cool, but it also means that I didn't know where my next paycheck was coming from. I wanted to meet someone making the same kind of hustle. We talked to a lot of players, but none had a story as crazy as our subject. At twenty-two, Nick became the youngest person to win the world series of poker, taking home a cool two million; then spent it all! I couldn't believe it. Where does two million dollars go?
Battling depression and anxiety, Nick became an inspiration as someone who struggles everyday and is open to expressing his emotions. On his quest to make back his money, old habits are hard to break: expensive dinners, insane nights at the club, and of course- girls. Nick went from having it all to having to start over from scratch. In a game where the stakes don't get higher, how is it possible to keep from going broke? And what happens if Nick wants to just call it quits?
