“The main character, he’s a dude, he’s been through the street life before,” Styles explained of protagonist Jake Billings. “But he turned his life around. He owns a little store, basically trying to get some money. Live the legit way. Basically, he puts his past behind him.”
Unfortunately, when two kids try to rob his store, his response lands him in prison. While he’s locked up, he receives an anonymous letter threatening his life. And shortly after a visit from his girlfriend, he’s stabbed and winds up in a coma for two years.
“He wakes up, ‘Who put me in a coma?’ ” Styles explained. “His past is sketchy; he can’t remember everything, so he’s gotta piece his life together while trying to stay alive. He has to be positive while dealing with all the negativity. He’s basically a trouper.”
