Singer-songwriter Kenny Rogers stars as a card shark with a heart of gold in 'The Gambler', an Old West tale inspired by one of the most beloved songs of all time. Brady Hawkes (Kenny Rogers) is a man who has seen it all...except for the son he never knew. When Hawkes receives a surprising letter from his child, he sets off on a journey to finally meet the boy. In the course of his travels, Hawkes crosses paths with the impetuous Billy Montana (Bruce Boxleitner), and the two become fast friends. Billy considers himself to be a professional gambler, but he's got a lot to learn - and Hawkes has got some very familiar advice for him.
