Based on the real-life case of Jesse James Hollywood, a drug dealer in California's San Gabriel Valley who, in 2000, became one of the youngest men to appear on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list. With family links to organized crime, Johnny Truelove is on the warpath against Jake Mazursky, a sleazebag addict who owes him money. Fate intervenes when Johnny and his friend Frankie encounter Jake's 15-year-old half-brother Zack and hold him as collateral until Jake pays his debts. What begins as a casual, seemingly harmless situation escalates into a crisis of capital crime.
