    • Synopsis
    • Jesse Finch is pretty much an asshole. He’d probably tell you that himself, or you could just ask anyone who’s known him more than a minute. His mom is tired of being hustled by her grown son for money and shelter. His brother is sick of bailing him out of jams. Even his pseudo-girlfriend seems to be actively shopping for greener pastures. But when Jesse almost runs over an orphaned toddler while driving a stolen car, he finds himself stepping up to the unexpected role of caretaker as he and the child navigate the often hostile world around them. A series of collisions with indifferent social workers, vigilante store owners, and violent street hustlers - coupled with Jesse’s growing awareness of his own failings - begins to rekindle a spark of humanity within him. And when the kid gets snatched and Jesse realizes that he’s been taken into one of the most depraved corners of the city, he must abandon his usual path of self-preservation in order to save the kid - and to salvage this tenuous new sense of himself.
