In Astoria, Queens, a group of seven gas station employees have been chipping into a lottery pool for months, never thinking they'd actually win. Money could solve problems for each of them: Matt (Matt Long) could get his girlfriend and two kids out of his mother's house; Matt's brother, Nicky (Stephen Louis Grush), an ex-con, could pay off a dangerous debt; Samira (Summer Bishil), a second-generation Pakistani immigrant, could afford to go to Juilliard; Denise (Lorraine Bruce), a plucky cashier, could focus on rebuilding her crumbling marriage; Leanne (Anastasia Phillips), a young mother, could help her daughter realize her dreams.

Lucky 7 operated during the evenings of April 14–16, 1978 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) on VHF channel 7, an otherwise-unoccupied frequency in the Syracuse area. Programs aired by Lucky 7 included episodes of such TV series as Star Trek and The Twilight Zone, as well as several films unavailable on broadcast television at the time. These included Oscar-winners Rocky and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, plus pornographic fare such as the infamous Deep Throat and Behind the Green Door. According to a New York Times report, a man with a gas mask was seen on-screen occasionally, editorializing and claiming that half the TVs in the Syracuse area were able to see the broadcasts. Station identification featured a pair of dice rolled to seven, backed by female singers. Lucky 7 made national news, with the real Syracuse TV stations featuring bits of the pirate broadcasts on their own news shows.
