Singer-songwriter Kenny Rogers stars as a card shark with a heart of gold in The Gambler, an Old West tale inspired by one of the most beloved songs of all time. Brady Hawkes (Rogers) is a man who has seen it all...except for the son he never knew. When Hawkes receives a surprising letter from his child, he sets off on a journey to finally meet the boy. In the course of his travels, Hawkes crosses paths with the impetuous Billy Montana (Bruce Boxleitner - Tron), and the two become fast friends. Billy considers himself to be a professional gambler, but he's got a lot to learn - and Hawkes has got some familiar advice for him.
