Angela Balanescu watches as those around her fall victim to their sins. Her father is an organized crime boss who feeds on power, solely focused on how he can gain more territory.
Hating the violence adopted by her family, Angela yearns to leave the town in which she grew up, instead of using drink and sex as escapism. When she falls for corrupt detective Sean, she wonders whether she can learn to trust him and put a life of crime behind her. But Vincent, her father's violent lieutenant, wants her for himself, and he reminds her that she shouldn't trust anyone.
