A short film starring Emmy-nominee Mark Margolis (Breaking Bad) and introducing David Hartstone. Putting his faith in chance, a troubled young man (David Hartstone) attempts to hold an eccentric store owner (Mark Margolis) hostage, while robbing him of his scratch-off lottery tickets. What follows will call the young man's life, choices, and very understanding of reality into question. Will he find enlightenment within the pile of cards, or will it all be for nothing? All he can do...is scratch. Written & directed by Matthew Rosenbaum.
