"Guys and Dolls" is a 1950s musical that explores the lives of a motley crew of men and a Salvation Army do-gooder in New York City. Three small-time gamblers and their boss, Nathan, are in a tight spot. Nathan needs to find $1,000 so they can host an illegal floating craps game in the only place that’ll let them in - the Biltmore Hotel garage. In order to make some fast cash, Nathan bets a gambler named Sky  tat he must take Save-a-Soul Mission Sergeant Sarah Brown to dinner in Havana, Cuba. Sky tries all the tricks to get Sarah to go out with him. She initially refuses. But, when the leader of the Save-a-Soul organization tells Sarah the mission will close unless they can bring more sinners to the upcoming revival meeting, Sarah promises to find sinners to bring, and accepts Sky’s deal to dinner, hoping she can turn him around. At dinner in Havana, Sky begins to fall for Sarah, and Sarah for Sky, until Sarah finds out that the mission is being used for the craps game, and everything falls apart.
