Pool hustling isn’t everything it used to be, but it’s still all about the cash. Joe (Chazz Palminteri) a shady pool hustler well-past his prime, is obsessed with the game and the cash and is willing to use anyone to get what he wants – especially his young protégé Johnny (Mars Callahan). In the tradition of The Hustler, Gold Circle Films presents a Mars Callahan film, the story of a young pool shark who shoots lights out and wants to become a professional pool player. Joe is convinced that Johnny moves the rock (the cue ball) better than the best hustlers ever did, but Johnny’s dreams are a cut above this life and senses that Joe is holding him back. After fifteen years playing Joe’s angles, Johnny’s sick of the con and wants to leave the hustle behind. After discovering Joe’s underhanded and self-serving manipulations Johnny finally has the guts to leave Joe.
