Gabe is a troubled youth with an expectant girlfriend and a desperate need for money. Police officer Leon is struggling with his faith while trying to manage communication difficulties with his dying mother and his impressionable teenage son. And Catlin is a drugged-out prostitute rapidly losing all hope.
