Isaac English has little reason to remain in Buell, Pa. The dwindling steel town is beset with economic ruin, and for English, that devastation is echoed in his mother’s suicide and sister’s getaway to Yale. He tries to leave for California with high school chum Billy Poe, but when a drifter tries to rob Poe, English accidentally kills the man. The pair tries to shirk fault for the crime and English continues his quest for escape.
