Danny, the heavily tattooed sergeant of street gang president Moses, takes a hammer to the hand of gang member Dice for failing to pay his dues. The bone-crunching rebuke is also a warning shot across the bow of Moses’ sworn rival Tug, who is sowing seeds of discontent to stage a coup. As tensions escalate, banker’s daughter Flo challenges Danny’s snarling hard man act behind closed doors. His inability to meet her demand for tenderness sparks a patchwork of pain-soaked flashbacks.
