Akilla Brown is forty years old and for the first time in his life, the clandestine cannabis grow operation he runs is legit.

In the aftermath of the heist, Akilla captures one of the thieves, a mute fifteen
year old boy named Sheppard. Upon leaning the bandits are affiliated with the Garrison Army, a Jamaican crime syndicate his grandfather founded. Akilla is forced to reckon with a cycle of violence he thought he escaped.
