Casino Synopsis

The mob's man in Vegas, Sam "Ace" Rothstein (Robert De Niro), appears to have it all: a successful casino, a beautiful wife (Sharon Stone) and a protective right-hand man (Joe Pesci). But ill-placed trust and a gradual turn of events find our protagonist at film's end far from the glory he once knew.
