How many wrong turns does it take to destroy an ordinary family?

It begins with a stolen candle.

And as he does, he fails to notice his family falling apart.

His wife begins an affair with a man who is not all he seems. His children become involved with the criminal world.

And it won’t be long before blood is spilled.
