Based on the international bestselling novel by acclaimed writer Paul Auster, this is an evocative, darkly drawn tale of power, manipulation and high stakes living. Two small-time gamblers are caught in a web of power and manipulation. After losing a final hand of poker to two eccentric millionaires, they’re unable to pay their debts. So, they must agree to a bizarre deal: they’ll work off what they owe by building a huge stone wall around the millionaires’ estate. But soon the set-up deteriorates into a sadistic game pitting the bored millionaires against their unwitting indentured servants.
