Big trouble in the middle of nowhere.

Reaching crossroads in their lives, three teenage friends from a remote Texas town find their hopes and plans for the future in jeopardy when they become embroiled in the dangerous affairs of a ruthless local gangster. With first-rate performances from the three leads, directors Simon and Zeke Hawkins take us on a claustrophobic trip through the dark, oppressive side of small-town America as their soulful, haunting noir thriller unfolds in gripping fashion.
