Bingo Hall follows the elderly citizens of Oak Springs, and the local snoop and activist, Lupita (Adriana Barraza), is immensely protective of her hole-in-the-wall community. When a sinister gentrifier and entrepreneur named Mr. Big (Richard Brake) rolls into town and entices the residents of the low-income community with a new and improved converted bingo hall with cash prizes that fulfill all their worldly desires.

The too good to be true prizes serve up deadly consequences as Lupita discovers when her longtime neighbors begin turning up dead from gruesome circumstances.
