Millions of people play the lottery in hope of winning the jackpot prize that will change their lives. But, as director Jeffrey Blitz shows in his engaging documentary, those that do win face major changes in their lives, and not always for the good. Blitz follows several individuals and families who've become instant multimillionaires by winning Megaball. Some put the money to good use, others squander it. Along with their individual stories, Blitz presents a compact and fascinating history of lottery playing in the US, and shows how it has been used to raise funds for various government agencies and projects.
