Will and Big O are brothers and best friends—and small-time crooks. Ever since their dad went to prison, they've been stealing to survive. On a ferry ride from the big city, they hatch a plan for one more score: they'll break into the cars on the ferry during the trip and scrape together enough to get out of town. And maybe out of the criminal life forever. But everything goes south when they discover one car that contains more than they bargained for: a young kidnap victim. Pursued by a crazed professional criminal, the brothers must now survive the night and a final crossing into a new life.
