Hawk, Flaco, King, Spider, and Miklo are brothers; a family brought together through abandonment by their own blood. The leader of the gang, Hawk, wants out of the life they've built; tired of thieving and mischief. He hatches a plan to kidnap the mayor's daughter for ransom. The plan is set, the location for her captivity is solid, but a wrench gets thrown in the works that will change the course of all their lives. An ultimatum, a choice, a sacrifice, and a plan.
