Damian Walker is mourning the recent death of his only child to cancer. Unwilling to carry on, he parks at the side of a desolate road, readying to shoot himself in the head. As he’s about to pull the trigger, there is a knock on his window – a prostitute named Sugarcake appears mistaking the car as another potential client. She is faced with an unexpected dilemma: should she save this stranger’s life?
