Fifteen-year-old Vernon Gregory Little is in trouble. The tiny, flea-bitten town of Martirio – barbecue sauce capital of Texas – is in shock after Vernon’s best friend Jesus Navarro massacres sixteen of their classmates before turning his gun on himself.

With Jesus dead and nobody left to blame, the Martirio townsfolk are looking for a scapegoat. And with the appearance of charming but sadistic television reporter Eulalio “Lally” Ledesma, Vernon soon finds himself in hot water. There’s only one answer: take inspiration from the film Against All Odds and run away to Mexico. But the law is in hot pursuit, the TV cameras are rolling, and before too long, the eyes of the entire world are on Vernon.
