Fifteen-year-old Ricki's father is a bounty hunter, and ever since her mother walked out on the family, Ricki must accompany her dad on his jobs tracking down felons. When he picks up a good-looking but edgy bad-boy ?skip? not much older than Ricki, she starts to fall for him and soon tries to help him escape from her father's clutches. But Ricki underestimates her crush, and before she knows it, she's in way over her head. This felon has a manipulative mind of his own, and he knows just how to use Ricki to get what he wants.
