This political satire focuses on the life and times of once powerful Washington, D.C. lobbyist Jack Abramoff, known by intimates as "Casino Jack." Abramoff's efforts to live the high life and control the destinies of some of the world's most powerful men leaves a trail of corruption in its wake and ultimately involves Abramoff and his associates in murder. Abramoff sees his once high-flying empire start to crumble after enlisting the aid of a friend connected to organized crime, a mistake that leads to Abramoff's illegal dealings becoming exposed and his ultimate arrest and imprisonment.
