In this coming-of-age story, the absentee father (Xander Berkeley) of an alienated teenage boy (Ryan Donowho) returns home to a small town in East Texas, to discover a household of crystal meth addicts. The father, Sonny, and his teenage son, Abe, struggle to reconnect and stay clean while sharing their house with an abusive uncle (Anson Mount), who goes by the nickname "Bump". The uncle's meth-fueled rage increasingly threatens the safety of the entire family, especially the uncle's six year old daughter, Deandra. In the end, in order to save Deandra and himself from Bump's spiraling behavior, Abe is left with only one option; and Sonny, the redemptive father, must sacrifice his life to give his son the future he deserves.
