Charlie Benz is young man with a disability who has been kept in the attic of his family home. His uncle and aunt take care of the young man, but the only thing he learns is by looking through the cracks in the attic floor and watching the family television. After his aunt disappears, his drunk uncle fails to take care of him and occasionally came to the attic to beat the disables young man with his belt. Later, when Charlie Benz fights back, he killed his uncle and set the house on fire.
Charlie Benz escaped from the burning house not knowing where he was going. He was befriended by several curious people and found himself being hunted along the interstate from rest stop to truck stop trying to escape a group of drug cartel members who wanted the money and drugs Charlie Benz found had and was carrying.
Charlie Benz was escaping to a place the "voices" had told him it was where he needed to go.
