Amidst the haunting refineries of Southeast Texas, hard-drinking single dad Hollis (two-time Emmy Award-winner Aaron Paul) struggles to raise his two boys, including rebellious teenager Jacob (first-time actor Josh Wiggins, in a stunning breakthrough performance). Obsessed with heavy metal and seething with rebellious anger, Jacob finds release in the high-risk, white-knuckle world of motocross but his increasingly reckless behavior threatens to spin out of control, especially when it starts to involve his younger brother Wes (newcomer Deke Garner). When the local authorities catch wind of the increasingly volatile situation, Wes is taken into custody by his Aunt Pam (Academy Award nominee Juliette Lewis), leaving Jacob and Hollis to fend for themselves. In Wes absence, Jacob becomes increasingly obsessed with two things: winning a local motocross championship and getting his brother back. With a scorching central performance by Wiggins and heart-wrenchingly raw turns by Paul and Lewis, Hellion is a powerful portrait of a family on the brink of dissolution that's impossible to shake. To shake.
