A ruling class sociopath kills a working class girl in a hit and run and uses a deck of playing cards to determine their fate
Charlie Barnum has it all, the perfect wife, the money, the house, and the loyalty of his best friend. The fact that Charlie requires Viagra to have sex with his wife, is losing his properties, and has seduced his best friend's wife, means nothing to Charlie, because Charlie is living on dangerously borrowed time. When he kills an innocent girl in a hit and run, and as blood pours from her injuries, Charlie the man who knocked her down, consults his deck of playing cards and chooses to give up responsibility for all future deeds. Lies become truths, reality becomes fantasy, and, as Charlie embroils the three comfortable couples in the ugly excesses and sanctimonious prejudices of his new found power, they discover some deeply disturbing truths about each other. Charlie is the critically acclaimed, highly controversial film that is provocatively dark, shocking, and with satirically disturbing humor.
