Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2006
No Limit, the highly anticipated feature length poker documentary has finally arrived. After making its debut on the film festival circuit to critical acclaim, it is now available on DVD.
The movie follows two single parents who take a shot at trying to save their struggling independent film company by unorthodox methods. Susan's solution is simple enough: enter some high-stakes poker tournaments with money she doesn't have, win one and solve her cash flow problems. Susan has played poker before, but never at this level. Now, all she has to do is convince her former fiancée Tim to leave his two kids in Maine, throw caution to the wind and go chase the "American Dream" on the poker tournament trail. Tim is not a poker player or gambler but is somehow convinced by Susan's relentless optimism. Tim laments "It sounded like a good idea at the time..."
"No Limit" takes you on an eight-month journey down the poker tournament trail. It's a long and winding road that ends in Las Vegas at the biggest tournament of them all, The World Series of Poker. There are many highs, lows, and in-betweens along the way that could spell disaster for these two and their four year old child, but all they need to do is win one tournament.
No Limit is an unprecedented look inside the world of high stakes poker, featuring interviews and words of wisdom from over 40 of the top players in the world. Poker and "The American Dream" have never been so exposed. Susan is a "soccer mom" on a case of redbull, Tim is a "fish out of water". Their four year old son and their "American Dream" is the glue holding this whole thing together.
With a heart of gold and nerves of steel Susan gives it all she's got while we stay on the edge of our seats hoping for the best yet fearing the worst. While exploring themes of greed, addiction, individualism, talent and freedom, this entertaining documentary guides us through an offbeat world few of us will ever enter.... whether you are a seasoned pro or a casual observer, "No Limit" has something for everyone.
