In the winter of 1990, Oklahoma’s economy is still recovering from the crash of the state’s oil boom and the failure of many a family farm. Despite the burst bubble, illicit drug trafficking is thriving, and cocaine is king. Amidst the rubble is Ringer—a down-and-out racecar star who’s desperate for a comeback after a four-year stretch in prison for transporting marijuana. When Ringer’s old drug-dealing friend, Darryl-Jack Chaney, offers him an iffy second chance in the form of a small town bank job, Ringer accepts the risk as getaway driver, figuring why not? He’s got nowhere to go but up. Instead of making a payday, though, Ringer ends up double-crossed by his pal, who leaves him for dead and absconds not only with the cash but Ringer’s wife Julie, too. Ringer survives the murderous betrayal and sets out on a different kind of comeback. No longer does he seek the glamour of racecar driving. Instead, he’s out for bloody revenge. Ringer embarks on a rampage of guns, deadly car chases, and a showdown only one man will survive, proving it’s never good to cross a man with nothing left to lose.
