Plot Summary
When a British tourist is kidnapped, lawman John Brennan (Liam Cunningham) heads to Rome to investigate -- and falls into the web of a devious serial killer known as "the card player." Linking up with the police via webcam, the murderer engages the officers in a grotesque game of video poker. If they win, the victim is freed; if they lose, they'll watch the victim die. Italian detective Anna Mari (Stefania Rocca) joins Brennan as they try to find the killer before the final card is played.
