Surviving the mean streets of New Orleans in 1956, young Tim Kelly begins a young Indiana Jones style adventure by lying about his age to join the Coast Guard at the tender age of fourteen.

Returning home, he is faced with the dilemma of betrayal of an old friend who – although he is a ruthless drug cartel boss – has saved his life on more than one occasion – his decision leads him to the shadow world of drug and human trafficking – and after his cover is blown – he survives torture to be rescued just in the nick of time.
