New York speakeasy owner Drake Lauren and his sidekick Danny escape from a torrid gun chase, and in a moment of reflection, Drake takes up residence in a Massachusetts community. In a world apart from New York's wickedness, Drake senses, searches for something he can't grasp. He flounders, unfamiliar and uncomfortable with the rush of sensations he finds in this parochial New England region. Two charming but unsettling women enter his life. Though trying to resolve his New York connections he knows he can't break free of gangsters determined to eliminate him. And while searching for the path to redemption he discovers it's neither clear nor guaranteed—and complicated by women who add their demands. Drake needs a daring solution.
