Las Vegas is a glittering illusion in the desert, a house of cards built on dazzling lights, hope, and desperation. It’s Disneyland with strippers and cheap drinks, full of hapless losers, wide-eyed tourists, and gangsters nostalgic for how it used to be.
In Sin City everything can change in the blink of an eye. Maybe you’ve got a score to settle, or an easy mark lined up, or you just think your luck will change this time. It might even be enough to win her back, or get you out of the life. But don’t bet on it—in the end, no matter how special you think you are, the house always wins.
