His character speaks direct with explicit tales of survival in the midst of adversity. No feelings are spared following the main character Oscar through travails.

She hasn’t been there in over eighteen years since taken away by Perry in an impulsive decision to leave Junction City.

However she will have to face her past once finding out her life won’t be the same by being forced back to a place and the man she ran from, Hank Watkins. His stature is menacing and he rarely smiles, staying low key during the day and out all night at the Blue Milk Café. At times prostitution and illegal drug activities occur in and around the place. Red Watkins is introduced as the nephew of Hank, a partaker in the underground trade and cousin to Oscar. Once their worlds collide the mix ignites, explodes and will expose a truth from their family tree.
