You’re making money following your passion, you’re living in the city you always hoped for, and the girl of your dreams wants you, so badly she’ll move across the country to be with you.

But what do you do if the dream turns into a nightmare? What do you do when you need to wake up to escape?

What if you can’t wake up?

Marcus Jordan is an intelligent and sheltered young college graduate from the outskirts of Charlotte who, instead of following the glittering green of Wall Street or the politics in D.C., runs to the flashing lights of Las Vegas with its poker, parties and potential. He dreams of owning a Mercedes Benz, partying with models in the nightclub XS and raking in six figures at an age when most struggle to stay out of debt. Two months into Vegas, he's so deep in his dream it's impossible to remember what it was like in the real world—if he ever lived there.

But what happens when the nightclubs close, the girls leave and the money flow begins to dry up, leaving him with souvenir chips in his oversized, overvalued apartment? What happens when the dream—at first an extravagant lifestyle, and then a model-esque girlfriend—takes a turn so drastic he prays he wakes up back in North Carolina?

Will Marcus learn from his mistakes and grow from them, or will he be stuck in his self-created nightmare forever?
