Synopsis

Everyone in an old apartment complex that’s been waiting for demolition work for 10 years is in deep debt. The residents gamble in the hope that they can gain enough money to keep their apartment and achieve their small dreams.
14-years-old Ròm works as bookie lottery runner to earn a living. He lives an unsettling life due to his separation from his parents and always yearns to earn enough money to find them.
Ròm’s rival is Phúc, due to his streak of picking the winning numbers, the people in the apartment complex trust him over Ròm. However, Phúc had been tricking the residents for a long time. Seeing that this isn’t right, Ròm changes this by helping the people pick a good number. Ròm’s number wins and Phúc loses all of his customers to Ròm. Believing in Ròm’s good luck, the tenants want to bet big to settle all of their debts.
But Phúc kidnaps Ròm and takes all of the bets to turn in, and once Ròm finally appears, the creditors are demanding if their debts are not paid off, they will take their apartments.
Betting everything they have, it is now up to Ròm to save the tenants again.
Can Ròm save them again?
