That hope appears to be dashed forever when a young pole dancer named Peanut ends up dead on his watch at an after-hours party with local businessmen and politicians. Though he wasn't the one who administered the fatal blow, he was present when the dirty was done, and every powerful man in the city kws it. He must either risk going to prison for a deed he did t do, or win himself powerful enemies by telling the truth.
