This film enters the mind of Joy, a 57-year-old woman. Joy’s gambling addiction has overcome her sense of morality and driven her to embezzle $700,000 from two employers. As she awaits sentencing for her crime, Joy struggles to explain her disease to her children, to the world, and to herself.
The purpose of the documentary is to show the signs and symptoms of gambling addictions, to highlight the need for prevention and interventions, and to demonstrate that help is available.
