The Story of Rushing Roulette
Shawn Cognac and his longtime dance partner Alexandrea Cole, both 20s, have just completed another hit show on NYC stage. Their chemistry on stage is unmatched and for years Shawn has wanted to tell her how he wishes they had the same physical connection off-stage. Instead, he’s been hooking up with super model and resident drama queen Gabrielle Michaels, who doesn’t like how close he is with Alex. Gabby’s controlling father, Blair, is the dance company’s Executive Producer until he loses his shares of the company to loan sharks to cover his gambling debt. But when Alex is introduced to Hollywood heartthrob Drake Washington, she’s smitten, but he’s got a painful history with Shawn.
All in the name of money, power, fame, love and heartbreak, we follow the love square of four people tangled in the ultimate gambler’s game of risking everything for loving affection, desire, and obsession. Each one taking the risk must learn the consequences of such risk and chance, knowing the outcome may not be a winner’s luck.
