Mick, Brody and Aaron spend most of their free time drinking and commiserating about the raw deal they have in life. One night, instead of going to the high school football game, they start on a drinking binge that spirals down farther and farther until it ends with a deadly mistake. Although he's not part of the violence, Mick helps his friends cover up their terrible actions. When they get caught, Mick must decide whether to trust his friends not to talk to the police or to choose to be the one tha t makes a deal to get himself off the hook. An exploration of class, opportunity-or the lack thereof-and the consequences of taking the wrong path.
