Accompanied by her daughter young Lily, these three build a makeshift family where they all share respect and care for one another.
But beneath the surface of this lovely picture, there’s something dark. Victoria was once a drug courier and Lily is having health issues. Hickey plans to use this to his advantage.
Upon taking Lily to an unknown location, he makes a bargain with her mother. In exchange for money to pay for doctors and medicine, Victoria must make five runs to pick up profits made from drug cartels. Realizing she has no choice, she complies. She then takes off on an impressive motorcycle as her drug-running adventure begins.

Facing challenges ranging from illegal drugs to gunpoint blasts, Victoria will need to put in her all if she is to survive this night, return the profits to Hickey and rescue her daughter.
