Shot in Louisiana, with a soundtrack full of whirring cicadas and interstate traffic sounds, the movie seems to be taking place in the mind of its hero, Sonny (Sam Trammell of "True Blood"), a once successful small businessman who lost his fortune and became a drug addict. Sonny lives in a scuzzy motel, smokes crack whenever he can get it, and obsesses over the days when he was comfortably married to his kindhearted wife, Jen (Missy Yager), and running a successful home security operation. The story is built around an escalating series of offenses. First Sonny shoplifts a greeting card that he means to give to Jen on her birthday. Then he sneaks into a pawn shop and hides there until closing time to steal (or perhaps reclaim) a necklace for Jen. By the end of the film, he's gotten pulled into a wild, dangerous, major crime that he also justifies in Jen's name. He says all about his wife, but it's really all about Sonny—his arrogance, his embarrassment at having lost so much, his craving for vindication and renewal.
