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.
