Plot:

A young woman (Abbi Butler) enters a warehouse-type facility and sits at a table.

A man (James J. Fuertes) enters and sits at the table opposite her.

We learn that she has entered a game and that the man is the facilitator of a game. She is competing against unseen players in distant locations, the winner to receive one million dollars. To win, she must have a high threshold for pain.

The facilitator is in communication with the game leaders through a Bluetooth earpiece.

Once three players drop out each round is over. The final round involves a game of Russian roulette, and once you reach that round there is no backing out…

“It would be easy to become bored with a 107-minute movie featuring just two characters, but that isn’t the case here. The script is well-written and builds tension throughout, engaging the viewer and drawing them in with excellent performances from the two leads.” Doctor Gangrene’s Mad Mad Mad Blog

The Odds is a psychological thriller. If you want horror, go elsewhere. If you do like thrills more than chills, you could do worse than The Odds. It is a decent entry in an oversaturated genre, and it goes the extra distance by attempting something other than lots of gunplay and explosions.” HNN

A film that will linger in your thoughts and perhaps touch your nerves a little too closely. The actors work the challenging material with impressive skill. The Odds is a film that should bring deserved attention for all involved in its creation.” The Naschycast Podcast
