Based on a true story. In the early 1960s, Victor Torres and his family moved to Brooklyn, New York from their native Puerto Rico in search of a new life. The American dream quickly fades as they face a life of want in their adopted home. As a new recruit in a street gang, a teenage Victor embarks on a lucrative new drug-trafficking business in an attempt to help his struggling family. Victor is quickly enslaved by drug use, and his parents, Manuel and Lila, desperately search to find a way to help their son. A faith-based rehabilitation program is their last chance to rescue Victor.
Distraught over the recent death of his Marine father, young lacrosse star Conor Sullivan (Kellan Lutz) watches his life spiral out of control as he behaves in increasingly self-destructive ways. Conor is then put under the care of his father's Marine buddy (Adam Beach), who takes him to a strict wilderness youth camp where he experiences lacrosse in its purest Native American form.
