Sixteen-year-old Erin is about to learn a valuable lesson; when nobody is watching, there is no "taboo".
Sixteen-year-old Erin has spent her entire life in the town of Sordes, Nebraska. Abandoned by her parents and left in the care of her older brother Nathan (a drug-dealing, emotionally unstable ex-convict), Erin is trying to find her footing in her impoverished, superstitious environment. Much like the other children in the town, Erin drinks, gets high, kills stray cats, and simply hopes that luck will allow her to continue existing. She sees the “real” world through TV screens, dreaming of the day when, like her parents, she can break free of Sordes and become a part of it.
However, when Nathan kidnaps a young boy to get revenge for the brutality he suffered in prison at the hand of the teen’s older brother, Erin’s already offbeat world is irreparably damaged. Torn between her skewed sense of morality and her loyalty to Nathan, Erin is forced to make a choice; Do the right thing or preserve the security of the only way of life that she’s ever known.
