Only one card can win the Game, the rest will be eliminated. Which doesn’t matter, the cards will be dealt again. All except the Fool, who must win, or die.
The Daughters of Destiny play a Card Game which offers one person a unique prize, the chance to avoid an otherwise inevitable fate.
Single parent Charlie Brown has cancer. Despite partner Paul dumping her and walking out on his baby son, with the help of her family life was becoming bearable again.
While wandering around the area of the B&B she finds herself staying in, Charlie enters a shop and becomes drawn to a mysterious black box.
Within the box, Charlie finds a deck of cards like nothing she has seen before.
Little does she know that she has been chosen as the Fool, and to win her chance of life she must enter the world of the Game and lead her hand in a battle against magic and monsters to be the final survivor.
Who can she trust? In the Game, all decisions are crucial, and the last is the hardest of all…
