For a grumpy group of RETIREES the predictable tedium of life at a Los Angeles retirement home is given a jolt of life - and mystery - when the new nurse, vivacious Latina ROMA, introduces them to Lotería, the Mexican game of chance. Not only do her riddle-style announcements of each card ("El Diabolito," "La Estrella," etc) closely match long-hidden secrets from their lives, but the winner of each day's game is visited by SOMEONE- or something- from their past that gives them each a final shot at redemption.

"As long as you're in the game you have a chance to win."
