Shifting from one pocket to another, from one man’s drama to another, a lowly dollar bill, ‘one buck’ takes us on an odyssey through the heart of a forgotten town in Louisiana. Along the journey of ‘one buck’, we encounter Harry who is immersed in a downward spiral brought about by the sudden and violent death of his wife. In its transitions from each hopeless hand to another and each desperate character to the next, ‘one buck’ bears witness to different facets of irresistible vice enticed by money. If money could talk, this is its disturbing tale of the dark side and of moral disintegration in society. Harry’s self destruction is the highlight of the stories and his demise serves to be his redemption.
