Synopsis by Buzz McClain

Emerging artist Sean Fields (Jeremy Fox) is haunted by the hidden brutality of his upbringing at the hands of his abusive stepfather Ray, a powerful Texas judge (Ev Lunning Jr.). This mental state is reflected in his sexually explicit and controversial paintings. On the brink of being discovered (he's been tapped for a major exhibition), Sean falls in love with the sexy and wild Hannah (Amalia Stifter), whose life is complicated by a relationship with crude and protective redneck Davie (Stephen Bruton). Davie seems to know something about Hannah that Hannah would rather Sean did not discover. As it happens, Judge Fields has hired Hannah, through lowlife intermediaries, to keep Sean from painting; the judge thinks Sean's success will disgrace his name and prevent him from winning a seat in Congress. It all comes to a horribly violent end.
