Logline: 
After her deadbeat ex-boyfriend steals her winning lottery ticket, a hard-boiled trailer trash girl recruits her best friend and a sexy knife-wielding assassin for a revenge plot to reclaim her rightful fortune.
Synopsis/Details: 

They’re not heroes. They don’t even have the grace to be called “zeroes”. Nasha and Taylor are two of a kind—the kind you want to stay away from. The kind that makes trouble a nine-to-five job every day, and on this day, Nasha has clocked herself in for overtime. In dangerous debt to nearly everyone on the planet, including high-powered drug dealer Kimball Trent, Nasha’s “don’t-give-a-damn” attitude lies solely in the bliss of buying a pack of cigarettes and a spontaneous scratch-off lotto card—one that lands her with the sum of one hundred thousand dollars. Promising Kimball retribution and then some, Nasha’s foot is nearly ready to slam the gas pedal out of her house-on-wheels when lowlife ex-boyfriend Reese steps back into the picture and steals the golden ticket, claiming the fortune for himself. After Nasha unsuccessfully tries to convince Kimball that his compensation slipped from her fingers, she finds herself face-to-face with a sexy knife-wielding assassin sent by the drug tycoon to dice and slice her troublesome life—except this is no ordinary blade-flinging broad. It turns out the two have a lip-locking history, and Nasha instead persuades her to join the by-the-moment revenge quest she crusades against Reese to reclaim her rightful riches as the girls cut and carve their way to reprisal using everything from a ransomed foul-mouthed parrot to a kick-flipping ninja midget. Filled in every crevice with sexy, sharp action, cool-cutting characters and razor-witted dialogue, this Tarantino-esque revenge romp will undeniably prove that it isn’t smart to screw over a dumb bitch!
