A screenplay based on the published novel by the same author.
Brandon DeWolfe is a rather immature teenager who many consider to be a loser. When he turns 18 he buys his first lottery ticket and wins $3 million. Instead of living happily ever after, this event sets off a string of challenges in school, his love life, his family situation and it even leads to a run in with the law. Brandon can't figure out who his real friends and allies are and he is headed toward the kind of trouble he's simply not prepared for. He discovers that money does not necessarily bring happiness and sometimes good luck turns out to be bad luck or in this case, dumb luck.
