After being busted for drug possession, a troubled teenager and talented runner, Aiden (Edouard Philipponnat – House of Gucci, What Happened to Monday), is given a choice by the police: cooperate or spend 10 years in prison. Under duress, he makes the tough choice to work alongside a relentlessly ambitious and hard-boiled detective (Cameron Douglas – Loaded) and has no choice but to confront a local drug kingpin (Eric Balfour – The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, What Women Want). Caught between two worlds – high school dramas and the home comforts of his despairing mother, Miranda (Elisabeth Rohm – Joy, American Hustle) and the sinister crime-ridden world he’s been plunged into, Aiden’s troubles begin to spiral further and further out of control…
