Ravens' gang leader Goose (Jim VanBebber) has decided to give up his violent lifestyle in order to seek a peaceful existence with his girlfriend Christy (Megan Murphy) after a particularly brutal confrontation with rival gang the Spiders. After Christy is brutally murdered by two members of the Spiders, Goose must once again take up his guns and seek vengeance against the Spiders while avoiding the Ravens, who have acquired a new leader with a taste for Goose's blood. Navigating the deadly and desolate streets of Dayton, OH, the lines between reality and dementia are blurred as the grief-stricken Goose attempts suicide and is saved by one of his former gangster cohorts. Convinced to aid the Ravens in teaming with the Spiders for a dangerous security truck robbery, Goose is double-crossed by the Spiders and must fight for his life in order to get the payload to Christy's desperate younger sister.
