Screenwriter Austin (Josh Adams), house-sitting his mom’s place east of Los Angeles, is surprised when his brother Lee (Stephen Rowe) shows up.
Familiarity has always bred contempt for these two. The Ivy League-educated Austin has wife and family and a job he likes; Lee survives by burglary and is often on the move. They’ve been estranged for the past five years.
Beer-guzzling Lee is in search of new targets, thinks his mom’s neighborhood looks promising, and wants to borrow Austin’s car for a heist.
