Detox is the story of young man named Eric. Eric passes the time indulging in various narcotics, with seemingly no direction for his life. That all changes when his older brother Ian comes to him with a plan to rob a huge crime lord and retrieve a mysterious envelope.

Now Eric seeks out the help of a close family friend in order to quickly sober up and serve up some justice to those responsible for his brothers' murder.
