When her grandfather passes away, she inherits the family’s farmhouse, for which the lucrative water rights are coveted by Calvin (Bruce Dern – Nebraska and The Hateful Eight) — a longtime business rival of Audrey’s grandfather. Calvin’s own grandson, Bobby (David Spade – Father of the Year and The Do-Over), is on a mission to prove that he can take on the family business, and decides to take matters into his own hands by hiring the mentally unstable Rainy (Guillermo Diaz – Scandal) and drug-addicted Jawari (Dwight Henry – The Birth of a Nation and 12 Years a Slave) to intimidate Audrey and Cheyenne into giving up the property. Once Bobby’s goons realize Audrey does not intend to go quietly, the situation quickly spirals out of control. Mother and daughter held hostage and fight for their lives!
