How the Chips May Fall

A tenth class reunion. Five women. Plenty of dirty little secrets. And one big game of poker.

Rachel, Cassandra, Julia, Gwen, and Emily were close friends in high school. On the night before their reunion, they get together for what should be a friendly game of poker. After a few hands, they discover that as they lose chips, they also lose inches from their height.

Their betting and bluffing become more intense as they gamble not only to win the pot but also to win back their stature. To disrupt each other’s games, they expose past rivalries, relationships, and secrets. As they shrink smaller, the stakes certainly grow larger.

Who’s holding all the cards? Who wants them cut down to size? And are they literally playing right into someone’s hand?
