The Million Dollar Bet
Three back-to-back marathons in 24 hours, two gambling buddies and a one million dollar bet. What is left to hold on to in life when everything is on the line?
They say anything is possible in Las Vegas. Hank and Jack live this credo to the full and not just in poker. When Hank decides to run three back-to-back marathons in 24 hours, their friendship is suddenly challenged by a million dollar bet, pushing their limits both physically and emotionally. Inspired by true events, director Thomas Woschitz infuses his wonderfully bold take on the indie genre with a multi-faceted narrative that is universally relevant. When the stakes are high, you better know the odds.

Inspired by true events, director Thomas Woschitz (UNIVERSALOVE, Bad Luck, etc.) presents a wonderfully bold and characteristically multi-faceted take on the indie genre with an American cast. He masterfully blends universally relevant stories – positioned between the imperative “Pure reason must never win” and the question “What's worth living for?”. The answers sometimes come at a steep cost. However, betting debts are often debts of honour. (Sebastian Höglinger)
