Lucky

Lucky offers a glimpse into the reality behind the fantasy of lottery winners. Qang is a Vietnamese refugee, whose American dream materialises in the form of $22 million while working the floors of a meatpacking factory; James is a sheltered outcast living with his team of cats in a litter-strewn bungalow, before chance pays him a multi-million dollar hand. With prize money reaching into the hundreds of millions, some lives are changed for the better, some for the worse.
