Harry Ordway has always done everything right. His life, career, wife and faith are all planned for him by his overly religious parents. Bored, restless, over sheltered and too much time on his hands, it was only a matter of time before he got into mischief. After a dare accepted to destroy a slot machine owned by mob boss Joey Carter, this sheltered young man is put into the underbelly of the gambling and criminal world. He owes Joey more than he could ever pay, and Joey is a man who collects his debts. Thinking he's probably a dead man, Harry tries to return the stolen money to Joey, but that's not good enough. Joey insists Harry do a job for him; collect an old debt from another mobster. At first all Harry wants to get Joey out of his world and go back to the planned life his parents designed for him. Later, Harry is surprised to see that Joey may be a gangster, but he has a heart of gold and shares a common feeling of being victimized. As for Harry, his adventures in the larger world beyond the small town where he grew up have taught him many things about responsibility and being true to himself. He may have left town a boy, but he has returned a man. Sometimes a little rebellion is all you need to change your life.
