Delivery truck driver Joe Holmes (Brian Austin Green) makes his rounds in West Palm Beach dropping off parcels for a shipping company as cover for his side hustle: distributing drugs for T. Parker (Clifton Powell) and his nephew Marcus (Haas Manning). An out-of-control drug user himself, Joe promises 12-year-old son Caleb (Landon Gimenez) he'll straighten up and become a more responsible dad, but it's an uphill battle: After getting fired from his day job by boss Luke Parker (Barry Shabaka Henley), he loses a package of cocaine, putting him deep in debt to his criminal employers.
Four weeks later, out of work and depressed, Joe is snorting cocaine with his addict wife JoAnn (Erica Eynon) while Caleb attends a party for his crush, middle-school classmate Honey (Malia Vega) at her gated-community mansion. After walking home three miles because his drug-addled parents forgot to pick him up, Caleb blows up at Joe and JoAnn over their self-destructive habits. Joe rushes out of the house in a frenzy and impulsively robs the dealers he used to work for. Parker and Marcus, furious about being ripped off for two kilos of coke, race over to Joe's tiny Riviera Beach bungalow. As the heavily-armed gangsters attack the Holmes family home, Caleb struggles to survive the tragic consequences of his father's bad decisions.
