After Kenny's wife dies suddenly, he is forced to deal with the tough challenge of raising his children alone. Adding to his struggles of being "Mr. Mom," Kenny's nine-year-old son now suffers from Traumatic Mutism, as brought on by the loss of his mother. It is a problem Kenny has no idea how to fix. But just when he thinks he might have the answer, he and his son cross the unlikely path of a violent drug addict.
All Vance wants to do is grow and smoke marijuana. In order for him to turn this lifestyle into his way of life, he decides to take up a partnership with a Prospect from a motorcycle club. It is a decision Vance soon regrets. And to break away from this unfortunate business arrangement, the only solution he can think of is the one thing he could never see himself doing.
Rob Boyle has a plan. He's going to strike it rich from selling dope, and then buy his way into his motorcycle club. He's tired of being a Prospect, and knows that with a few hundred thousand dollars in his pocket, not only will he get himself "patched in," but will also have enough for a brand-new motorcycle. And if anyone should stand in his way, he has a plan for that as well. Murder.
