Russ sits in jail recounting the fateful events which led up to his imprisonment. After taking off with his girlfriend Sara and his best friend Darrell on a whirlwind trip to Las Vegas in the middle of the night, Russ punches out a man ogling his new wife, we learn Russ has consistent anger and jealousy issues. Perhaps that is why he finds his wife and best friend skipping town while he sits in jail.
