Fifteen year old Nick Markowitz lives in a secure, affluent suburb. He's a good kid, rarely in trouble. One sunny morning he's out walking when young marijuana dealer Jesse James Hollywood drives by with two friends. Unknown to Nick, Hollywood is in an escalating clash with Nick's older brother Ben over a $1200 debt. Hollywood acts on sudden impulse and stops their van. They beat, grab, then drive Nick 75 miles north. Across the next three days, Nick and Hollywood's fateful crossing ignites a chain of events that will end in tragedy.
