A young, debt-laden college graduate Calvin Keeper is struggling to land his ‘dream job’ in Manhattan. Unfair setbacks and emotional discouragement plague him. The chains of consumer debts and crippling student loans restrict his freedom, pushing him toward a personal financial crisis and psychological meltdown. He sullenly ignores the outer world around him as he tries to attain his job goal. He turns to old school friends and his Gulf War vet cousin Scooter for help in his desperate situation… only to position himself on an improbable head-on collision course with the same outer world he has tried to shut out. He finds himself accidentally connected to a high profile murder-suicide involving an ex-congressman’s son and a tragic house fire in South America.
