New York’s infamous crap game organizer, Nathan Detroit, challenges notorious gambler, Sky Masterson to a bet he is sure he will win, which is to take a mission girl named Sarah Brown to dinner in Havana, Cuba. Sky accepts this bet and pursues the known religious woman, while Nathan deals with his own issues, which would be his 14-year fiancée named Adelaide, who is tired of waiting to get married. When bets and love are at odds, the characters are called to question their priorities to make things “morally” right.
