16-year-old Steven (Mazello) lives in poverty in a trailer park in Ohio. His life was uneventful until his daddy, Big Hawk (Gandolfini), was sent upstate on a narcotics charge. Now Steven must take care of his alcoholic stepmother (Parker) and two little sisters while his daddy is gone. Complicating matters is a gang of vengeful neighborhood teens, harassment by his step-mother's ex-boyfriend and the possibility of sudden homelessness. Steven must mature and help his family survive life in a neighborhood weighed down by hopelessness.
