Three years later, Derek's mother Doris (Beverly D'Angelo), his girlfriend Stacey (Falruza Balk) and Danny await his release. Unbeknown to them, Derek is a changed man. Fresh from prison and ashamed of his past, he is now in a race to save his brother and family from the violence he has brought down on them.
