As headwaiter in an upscale restaurant in Reno, Nevada, Grant makes a great living, leads a comfortable life, and has a terrific bunch of friends. The only damper on his existence in "The Biggest Little City in the World" is Grant's continued barricading of himself inside the closet. Only his roommate Kaitlyn is aware that he's gay, and he takes great pains to keep it that way.
One Friday night, Grant and Kaitlyn host the weekly poker game held at their apartment. Too much liquor and fear of losing an unusual wager cause Grant to do exactly that, and he faces a significant dilemma. How is he supposed to obtain evidence that he has had sex in a legal Nevada brothel when he doesn't sleep with women, ever? With the term of the bet running out, a chance meeting with a member of a special club might provide the jackpot needed to change Grant's luck, and perhaps even his life.
Throw down your money, spin the wheel and toss the dice—anything can happen at Mistress Mercedes' Junkyard!
