New York, 2012. Jeweler Howard Ratner gets himself into big trouble when he loans an uncut, extremely rare diamond from Ethiopia to celebrity NBA basketball player Kevin Garnett. His problems stack up like in a cliff-edge game of Jenga with himself, until he can see no way out. With absolutely everything at stake, he takes one last desperate gamble to avoid ruin.

After Heaven Knows What and Good Time, brothers Josh and Benny Safdie return to their beloved New York City for a scintillating crime-thriller populated by remarkable characters. Adam Sandler plays the role of his life as Howard, reminding us why he is one of the best actors of our era. As independent American filmmakers, the dynamic Safdie duo follow in the footsteps of Cassavetes and Scorsese, here presenting a tour de force guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat.
