A portrait of a family on the brink of dissolution set against the haunting backdrop of the refineries of Southeast Texas. Obsessed with metal and motocross, the actions of 13-year-old Jacob has begun to raise concerns, especially when it starts to involve his little brother Wes. While the boys’ father Hollis loves his sons, he is still reeling from the loss of their mother, spending more time at the bar or working on his damaged beach house than with them. When the authorities catch wind of the increasingly volatile situation, Wes is taken into custody by his Aunt Pam. In Wes’ absence, Jacob becomes increasingly driven by two things: winning a motocross race and getting his brother back.
