Ain't nothing sweeter than the forbidden. Her name is Buttercup. And he'll kill them all before he'll let her go...
It is the 1930s, the era of Al Capone, John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, Ma Barker, and Bonnie and Clyde. When gangsters, bootleggers, bank robbers and racketeers ruled the night and the law. Amongst them, a young bank outlaw is blazing his way to infamy. He's known as Silvio ‘Bloodshot' Garelli. Bitter over the untimely death of his childhood friend and his wrongful incarceration, Silvio, now again on the outside, is determined to live his life by the gun. But his love for a colored hooch dancer at a carnival haunts him with painful memories that keep him seeking answers.
Her name is Buttercup. Born and raised in a dustbowl carnival by a midget named Tiny and a fading beauty ex-Vaudeville dancer, she's got a secret. Fate intervenes. Silvio and his band of brothers stumble upon a rural country town—and Buttercup's carnival. She fears he wants revenge for all he's lost due to their brief love affair. But what he wants will ignite passions, and fury, beyond either of their imaginings. And when the dust settles, so does the matter of love between them.
