Summary
Enormously wealthy and emotionally remote investment banker Nicholas Van Orton receives a strange gift from his ne'er-do-well younger brother on his 48th birthday: A voucher for a game that will change his life. Thus begins a trip down a rabbit hole that is puzzling, terrifying, and exhilarating for Nicholas and viewer alike. This is a surreal multilayered, noirish descent into one man's personal hell
