While enroute to Los Angeles, she accidentally gets stranded in the suburbs of Los Angeles and becomes engulfed in a gritty world upon being introduced to Mickey (Luke), a Neo Nazi low-level meth dealer. To both of their surprise, they begin falling in love just as they find themselves the prey of some ruthless drug dealers. During a 72-hour race against the clock, Tonya and Mickey will learn that on the road to redemption, there is a price to pay.
