Drew Jacobs (Kelly Blatz), a teenage track runner who lives with his mother Claire (Kim Basinger) and older brother Wes (Cam Gigandet), is overwhelmed and struggling with life. He is manipulated by a local drug dealer, Eli (Rhys Coiro), into running drug payments, and fears that he is heading down the same fruitless life path his brother once took as Drew finds the fate of his primary outlet, track practice, up in the air. Drew, however, is soon noticed by his reclusive neighbor and ex-track coach, Jame Coleman (Richard Jenkins), who offers to train him. As Drew trains, the two form a bond, until Coleman is killed by his brother's old gang the night before Drew's track meet, forcing Drew to conquer his fears and push through the meet by himself.
