A middle-aged man places a two-dollar bet on a horse at the track and wins. The widower with two teenaged daughters becomes hooked on gambling and within a week he begins cashing in his life savings to pay off his bookie. To make matters worse, he's being grifted for thousands of dollars by a beautiful con woman and her husband. To try to get even, the man begins betting on long shots.
