Kris Mangini loves show business.
His mother Madeleine is a performer in a Las Vegas variety show. She fears for Kris' future, seeing that the smaller clubs are a dying breed, being replaced by the entertiainment from the mega casinos.

In the end, Kris gets his wish of being able to amaze people with his magic tricks, but not at all in the way he ever expected.
