Rusty Talbot, down on his luck, not very smart, and trying to get his life together, discovers that as bad as things are, they can always get worse. Cornered, Rusty reluctantly agrees to assist his co-workers in ripping off his boss in a simple heist that intensifies the target already on his back. Stressed and foreseeing a bleak future, Rusty visits his father in prison, only to learn a secret that could potentially destroy the final good threads holding him together in this pulpy crime.
As the plan falls to pieces, Rusty must look down the barrel of the sidearm of life and hope like hell the bullet will miss; his only real blessing is that he won’t have to go it alone in this pulpy crime tale.
Success, freedom, survival, nothing is guaranteed.
