Holy Rollers is a documentary that follows the rise of the Churchteam, arguably the largest and most well funded blackjack team in North America. No one expected a group of Christians, pastors, worship leaders and church-planters to be in the business of card-counting. It started as a hobby for two friends, Ben and Colin, who wanted to do something interesting with their math skills and investment money. After making their living through blackjack for a couple of years, friends and family started asking to be trained as card-counters under their professional blackjack expertise. Before long, word spread through church circles and more and more people asked to join the team. Led by team managers Ben & Colin, the team quickly grew to include over 25 players based all over the US.
While they succeed in taking millions from casinos, how will they manage to find a place for faith and God in the arena of high stakes gambling?
