In a faithful rendering of the Paul Auster novel, Jim, a former fireman is drifting across America, living off an inheritance. On the road he meets professional gambler Jack, who convinces him to back him in a poker game with two wealthy old men. When he unexpectedly loses, the men are forced to work off their debts by building an enormous wall.
The end result is a film that is both highly original and compelling.
