Mike's a 28-year-old widower in Chicago. His wife was murdered and he was nearly killed in a home invasion.
Now broken and addicted to drugs, he's reaching out to the mafia to have his wife's killer murdered in prison.

Antonio is the 19-year-old son of mob boss Angelo Iovanelli. One night, Antonio and his boyfriend Hernan are brutally attacked by bikers. Antonio gets bloody revenge against the bikers and now he's got to leave town.

Mike, now on his way to Colorado to start his life over, is offered the chance to have his revenge carried out if he secretly transports Antonio out of Chicago.

On the way to their destination, Mike and Antonio are captured by Blaylock, a corrupt cop with a plan to rob an armored car during the annual Frozen Dead Guy Days festival in Nederland, Colorado. Facing prison and the wrath of the mob, Mike and Antonio have no choice but to go along with the plan. And everything goes violently wrong.
