A group of seven perverted and bored billionaires, who call themselves the Bills, have spun-up a new game for their own sadistic enjoyment. They will drop one hundred million dollars into the ocean and wait for someone to find it and claim it. Then, they’ll take it back and have a good laugh.

Travis Marshall and his fiancé’ Tricia Campbell, are working hard to be Marine biologist, when the two are yanked into the Bill’s cruel game. Travis and Tricia decide to play along - so to speak. They spin-up their own game plan, one that defines the ‘not so nice modern day good guy’.

Good people can swing back hard - and maybe sometimes, a bit too hard.
