A carjacker at a crossroads, whose personal and professional life are speeding towards a dangerous intersection. Kurt (Philip Lakin) is an expert car-thief, in it for the thrill, who uses disguises in his heists, not only to blend in with the crowd, but to heighten the excitement of the job. He struggles to connect with others, but oddly enough, has an affinity for languages. Kurt works for Larry (Mark DeMicco), a father figure who runs a chop shop disguised as a mechanic’s garage. However, Kurt’s career is soon threatened by Joe (Austin Meehan), a lowly mechanic and aspiring car thief, who will try to beat Kurt at his own game, blind to the consequences. Meanwhile, romance buds for Kurt with Emilie (Kara Rosella), a young mother with complications of her own.
