Product Description:

A drama about the intense relationship between a young man and his long-lost father, a small-time hood and leader of a rural crime ring. Their stormy reunion culminates in disillusion, violence and murder.

Plot Synopsis:

Two brothers are stuck in an impoverished household in rural Pennsylvania with their mother and grandmother. Their father, a notorious ne'er do well and professional criminal, drifts in every now and then to leave them some money, but he never stays. The boys are intrigued by their father and his criminal lifestyle, his money, and his girlfriends, and want to get closer to him. Eventually, the father agrees to plan petty heists for the older brother's gang, which the group performs willingly, for they are all enthralled by the father. But when the crimes get larger and trouble with the police is imminent, the father's truly evil nature is revealed when he willingly sacrifices his sons to save his own life.
