Mark Clayton is in the wrong place at the wrong time and finds himself doing four years. He adjusts to prison life and begins to stand up for himself against the system that failed him. He makes a new friend in prison - Ozzi - and when they are released they form a gang to take over the city's underworld. They are keen but desperate. Any scam will do - even dealing drugs from an ice-cream van. Mark is smart and the new gang is powerful and successful. But Ozzi is a loose cannon - violent, crazy and uncontrollable - a time bomb about to explode.
