This gritty debut feature from David Pomes stars Hell on Wheels' Anson Mount and Nikita bad guy you love to hate, Xander Berkeley, in an unflinching look at the complete breakdown of a family due to meth addiction. After a stint in prison, Sonny (Berkeley) returns to his home in East Texas, determined to repair his relationship with his teenage son. Standing in his way is his brother (Mount) who has turned their family home into a meth lab. As Sonny attempts to make things right with his son and help his niece get beyond her life in a crumbling meth lab, desperation leads to tragedy, heartbreak and madness. A FilmBuff presentation.
