Jake Buckman's relationship with his sixteen-year-old son
Ryan is not an easy one, so at the urging of his loving
wife, Pam, Jake goes alone to pick up Ryan at their
suburban movie theater. On the way home, Ryan asks to
drive on a deserted road, and Jake sees it as a chance to
make a connection. However, what starts as a father-son
bonding opportunity instantly turns into a nightmare.
Tragedy strikes, and with Ryan's entire future hanging in
the balance, Jake is forced to make a split-second
decision that plunges them both into a world of guilt and
lies. Without ever meaning to, Jake and Ryan find
themselves living under the crushing weight of their
secret, which threatens to tear their family to shreds and
ruin them all.
