    • Two young brothers, Chris (JAMIE BELL - Nicholas Nickleby, Billy Elliot) and Tim, go on the run through the southern states of the US when their uncle, Deel (JOSH LUCAS - Stealth, Wonderland, Sweet Home Alabama, The Hulk, A Beautiful Mind) returns from years in jail and murders their father (DERMOT MULRONEY- About Schmidt, My Best Friends Wedding) for keeping from him a fortune in old Mexican coins they had inherited.
      Having witnessed the killing, the two boys manage to escape with the gold coins, but leaving the murder weapon - Chris' own knife - covered in his father's blood and of course Chris' fingerprints.
      Chased by both Deel and the Police - who now suspect Chris of the murder - somehow the two brothers must evade capture and find a way to heal their broken family.
