A small-time bookie is overcome by greed, lust, and extraordinary circumstances. Eddie Ryan operates in the rough-and-tumble East End section of Houston, and just lost a bundle on the World Series. For him, there's only one way out: a phone call to a local loan shark. This triggers a sequence of events which soon send him running to save his own skin. Complicating matters is the presence of two strong women. One is Felina, the Mexican beauty he has always desired. The other is Linda, his older sister and the power figure in his life since early childhood. There are no clear-cut good guys. Only the cop cars are black and white, while everything else swirls in a kind of gray soup. Eddie plunges into a morally treacherous world, from the inner city of Houston to the French Quarter of New Orleans. Get ready for a fast-paced, nerve-jangling ride, where no one can be trusted, and life expectancy is short.
