Brandon Baker, a young high school graduate, is thrust into a world of dead-end jobs. Drinking life away with his friends, he awaits his shot at the only life to live in the eyes of an Albertan— oil and gas. Destiny wakes him from his seemingly eternal hangover, whisking him away from comfort to the unfamiliar streets of the big city and his shot at the big show, the oil rigs. Newfound love and experimentation challenge his inbred small town morals. Brandon finds life in the fast lane to be truly blinding. Work consumes him, love turns to lost, and greed leads to death. Stripped of himself, Brandon finds truth on the winds of a foreign land, where he questions what should have been and searches for his true path.
