Description
After being wounded in World War II, twenty-nine-year-old Francis Majcinek returns home to Chicago and develops a drug addiction due to his injuries. Dubbed 'Frankie the Machine' due to his skill at card-dealing, Frankie finds that the Windy City's temptations are far more dangerous than the battlefields of Europe.
