Dutch Book is a story about overcoming the odds and making it. It's a story about escape and success.
The film's name, Dutch Book is a gambling term meaning a sure thing or no-risk bet. The story follows a young man named Will on a one week journey of escape from the financial hold placed on his father by a local bookie named Joe. Will's father Billy Sr. was a catcher for the 1977 world champion New York Yankees; sadly though , his promising career was cut short. Now 33 years later Billy Sr. is both an alcoholic and a gambling addict that owes the wrong kind of bookie 20 grand. Joe is that bookie; he's old, mean, and always on the lookout to exploit someone in a difficult situation - Billy has become his most recent victim. Joe has not only taken Billy's prized championship ring, but he has forcibly employed Will(Adam Lopez) at his pool hall to work off Billy Sr.'s debt. Will soon decides that he cannot spend his days working off a debt that is not even his, so with some privilged information of a fixed horserace, he places a few no risk bets in an effort to free himself from his father's obligation. With a twist and unexpected turn arising from each wager placed - with the help of a con-artist named Cal(Justin Price) - and an ex-convict named Charley(Michael Anthony Spady) - Will learns that even a sure thing is accompanied by inherent risk.
