Emmie O'Brien is a former good girl, now on the fringe. When she and Nick Brauer, her mother's drug dealer, are arrested for their involvement in a series of robberies, Emmie testifies against Nick in exchange for a lighter sentence. During community service, she meets fellow classmate Max Shephard. When Nick, from prison, orders his associates to seek revenge against Emmie, Max's protective instincts turn out to be a useful thing to have in her corner.
