Glass of Scotch

“Glass of Scotch” revolves around an underground game of poker hosted by a homosexual mob boss. When a mysterious hand sprinkles poison in the boss’s drink, a tangled web of lies begins to unravel exposing everyone’s true colors. What begins as a celebratory poker night quickly turns into a tale of family, betrayal and death.
