Shade takes place in the seedy world of gambling in Los Angeles. Written and directed by Damian Nieman, the film deals with the world of poker hustlers and also delves considerably into blackjack; the playing of these games is the focus of several scenes. Rated R for violence, nudity and language, it doesn't shy away from the rougher side of the gambling life but instead shows it in all of its grit. The film revolves around a group of particularly skilled hustlers who manage to pull off a sting on The Dean, a legendary figure who doesn't take kindly to being scammed. Although they are successful in their attempt, they must go on to face the fallout of their actions. With such a powerful and well-connected man out to get them, they are about to learn just how dangerous it can be to provoke a lust for revenge. Escaping with their lives may not be as easy as they initially anticipated.
