Dice is set in a small, Canadian college town, where some of the residences are obsessed with a “game” involving dice. The game, as taught by college professor Glenn Taylor, involves making a list of six possible courses of action, and rolling a die to determine which to take. The game goes unnoticed by authorities until the murder of Sally Quine. Police detective Patrick Styvesant stumbles across the game while investigating Quine’s murder, and begins to suspect that cult-like activities may revolve around the game.
