Holly Forkner disappears. Upland, Arizona Chief of Police Troy Forkner, Holly’s husband, scours the wilderness of northern Arizona, first by air then on the ground, looking for her. Officer Nina Miller believes the perpetrator had an accomplice who may be hiding Holly in a motor home at the Upland reservoir. Nina’s partner, Rookie Officer Pike Tso, a Navajo Indian, believes Navajo spirits or skinwalkers may have abducted Holly. Sheriff’s Deputy Thomas Justman takes advantage of the situation by sending a ransom note and implicating a loner Indian in Holly’s disappearance. Meanwhile, J.C. Forkner, Troy’s brother, is once again involved in a pool game wagering something substantial.
Mayhem pursues JC, an aging and washed-up pool player, who steals cash from an unprofessional, sexually deviant, hit man named Black Berry. Sadly, the money belongs to Juan Hernandez and the Mexican Cartel, and they want it back. With Black Berry hot on their heels, JC and his thirteen-year-old pool playing prodigy son Kid head for the small town of Upland, Arizona. Back with family and friends, JC soon, but maybe too late in his life, realizes that the important things in life are exactly that: family and friends. The stakes and outcome of a nine-ball game in the back room of a run down saloon called the Last Chance turns the town into a circus, and brings JC full circle to where it all began for him.
