It's 1977. Ike and Lucy, the kids of Senator Charlie and Margaret Marder, are grown up and in trouble. U.S. Marine Ike has gone AWOL after a military operation gone wrong. Now he's off the grid, working on the pit crew of stunt master Evel Knievel and hanging in the roughest dive bar in Montana. Lucy has become the star reporter of a brand-new Washington, D.C., tabloid breaking stories about a serial killer and falling in with the shady family that owns the newspaper. Ike and Lucy soon realize that their worlds are full of danger. As their lives begin to spiral out of control, the decisions they make could mean life and death not only for them but also their parents.
