In 1975 fifteen-year old Patty disappears from a farming community in Oregon. Patty was the only friend of Jack McIntyre's beloved daughter. Jack's crop has just been wiped out by a hailstorm.

Jack quietly takes it on himself to find her. His search eventually leads him to the underbelly of a drug-fueled world of prostitution and ruined youth.
