    • Synopsis
    • 30 year old Ty Pastor's last bank job landed him behind Bars and his brother in the morgue.  Both were victims of 35 year old Jacob Sands, the bank-robbing partner who lured them to rob a ”mafia bank” and then betrayed them and expected to recover the hidden proceeds from their crimes. Only, the money wasn’t there, and the cops jailed Sands.
      Ten years of incarceration have made Ty a model prisoner.  He works in the infirmary and takes pre-med courses.  And he has promised himself to never hurt anyone again and get his family back. But not even a decade will put down the guilt that comes from leading his little brother to a bad end.  Ten years later, Ty’s mother still won’t take Ty’s calls and forbids him to talk to his sister.
      Jail has made Sands certain of one thing: Ty knows where his money is.  During a Federal appeals hearing, Sands with the help of his wife BRIDES and her son EARL escape custody.  US Marshals ROBIE and FBI boss OAKES bulldog Sand’s trail, but not before Sands has taken Ty’s mother and sister as hostages.  The price of their freedom is the cash.
      Ty breaks jail to find Sands and save his family.  All while pursuing the riddle of where his brother hid the cash.  That enigma takes him on a trek pursued by mobsters, US Marshals and FBI. All the while, Ty is dying slowly from wounds received during his prison breakout.  But he has to continue the Dead Run, capture or failure means the death of all the family he has left
