Bernie Lootz is bad luck to such an extreme that those in his presence invariably suffer from his misfortune. His affliction has put him seriously in debt to a Las Vegas casino, and as a form of repayment he has been put to work as a "Cooler." It is his task to gamble with or next to those patrons who are on a hot streak. His effectiveness is unquestionable until he meets and falls in love with cocktail waitress Natalie Belisario. His affliction pulls a 180, but not before he is finished paying his debt to the casino manager.
