“Simply stated, Jackpot is group therapy on wheels.” – Jennifer Alison, Editor

Before pagers and cell phones, and before Facebook and YouTube even existed, five strangers in Chicago meet in a car on the ride of their life. Vi is a songwriter on the verge of moving to Nashville, and Tom is her silent admirer. Sean is a drunken Irish boy ogling every skirt in the bar, and Sarah is a young, rich socialite trying to avoid Sean’s gaze. The four strangers leave Baker’s Tap in William’s Towncar, caught up in his weekly superstitious quest for purchasing lottery tickets at an old country diner. Between arguments and revelations, each of their defenses are lowered long enough for introspection, and if they are lucky, a future that includes a jackpot.
