Elliot is a down-on-his-luck salesman and soon-to-be husband with a baby on the way. His bills are piling up and his elderly (racist) father is getting evicted with nowhere else to live except with him and his black fiancée. To top it all off he loses his crappy job and the health insurance that covers his disabled brother’s care in the first 5 minutes of the movie.
Then he receives a phone call from a mysterious stranger who tells him he’s been selected for a one-of-a-kind game show and promises him $1000 to swat a fly. After he complies and finds $1000 deposited into his bank account he’s very intrigued and confused. The next challenge, eating the fly, comes with $3622. As the money increases, the challenges only get worse. The only catch is that if you quit or fail, you lose all the money you’ve earned and you’re left with your own legal defense. Finish all 13 challenges and all your troubles go away, they say. So he keeps going. But when will he reach a point where he can go no further?
