In the middle of the Nevada desert lies the entertainment capital of the world. At the peak of the economic crisis, three residents of Las Vegas struggle to make their American dream come true. Working as a peculiar portrait of the city, this film reveals a surreal, tragicomic reality hidden behind the shiny neon lights – a reality that a tourist would never see.
