Down-and-out ex-private investigator J.D. Fiorella is trying to get back on his feet. After years of travelling from coast to coast and too many failed business ventures to count, he moves back in with his mother in the Point Doom community of California. J.D. befriends Woody at one of his AA meetings, and Woody helps him get a job selling used cars at a local dealership. Just as things start to look up for J.D., trouble hits Point Doom. When J.D's only friend is gruesomely murdered, J.D.'s old habits kick in and he embarks on a mission of revenge.
