He has been doling out loans for nonexistent cars in the dealership's lot and the bank has caught on to the scheme. Anxious that his father-in-law will uncover the theft of dealership money, Jerry concocts a scheme to save himself. He arranges for two men to abduct his wife and request a ransom to be paid by his affluent father-in-law, the ransom later to be divided by Jerry and the kidnappers. From the start, circumstances go terribly wrong and what was expected to be a simple plan erupts into increasing violence. A very pregnant and determined Midwest sheriff tries to solve the multitude of murders in her jurisdiction.
