Twelve years after moving away for college to escape the drug trade, Travis Moore believes he can return to the city of his youth without facing his past.

Now he’s using Baby Jar to expose secrets about Travis that run much deeper than the dope trade, sending Travis on a collision course with his past, with no choice but to hold on.
