Billy finds life tough when the loss of his farther re-surfaces following a bad beat by a cheating loan shark. His family struggles to repay the debt left behind and fear comes knocking when there’s no way out. His mother Carol is working two jobs and all the hours of the day to try and meet the demands of the historic debt but out of work Billy struggles to financially support himself and is an added burden to his mother whom he lives with.
