Free will? God’s will? 

In the winter of 2011, Fred Woody Jr. deplanes in Dulles Airport in Washington, DC. He hungers for fame and fortune by winning a multi-million-dollar Texas Hold ‘Em Poker tournament.

Over the next three days, no obstacle will get in his way, or so he believes. Mishaps soon occur. Fred relives his personal misdeeds and pushes through many road bumps on his journey to the Atlantic City casino. Along the way, he meets several folks—some good, some bad, and some in-between. The choices he makes—both good and bad—define his every step. 

Travel through the confines of Fred’s mind. See the world through his eyes. Share his experiences and learn from them. 

You won’t find jingle bells or singing reindeer in this unique Christmas story, but you will discover a heart or two on the river.
