The three kids of the Byrd clan are the ire of school resource and truant officers - they peddle pot and steal car parts, doing what they can to survive with a mother who disappears for months on end. But when their mother returns with a new husband, a registered sex offender, a homicide follows, and the kids hit the highway. U.S. Marshal Lillie Virgil is convinced the Byrd kids are guilty of murder, and sets off on a cross-country hunt to bring them to justice. Sheriff Quinn Colson isn't so sure. And as he digs deeper into the case, he comes to think there may be a larger conspiracy at work.
