His dream girl is a stunning knockout, but she’s also the bold and seductive daughter of the threatening, other woman in his father’s life. Kevin’s journey into first love becomes a perilous adventure that forces both families to face the truths and harsh realities of their misguided decisions. All the mayhem reaches a fever pitch when Kevin and his father lock horns in a ruthless showdown.
