Joe Ransom is an ex-convict who's been inside several times for his violent behaviour. Now trying to keep out of trouble, he takes on a new job - but going straight is more difficult than it first appears when he finds himself desperate to protect the people he cares about. He meets a 15-year-old boy named Gary, who's just moved into town with his family and is looking for a job. Joe agrees to take him on but soon discovers that he's not the only one struggling to get through life. After witnessing Gary's drunken father beating him, he's desperate to step in and help, but knows a confrontation will only lead to another lengthy stretch in jail. When Gary's family issues escalate, however, Joe can't help but lay his life down for that boy's family - but just how far will he take it this time?
