A character drama based on the 2001 Elmore Leonard short story "Fire in the Hole." Leonard's tale centers around U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens of Kentucky, a quiet but strong-willed official of the law. The tale covers his high-stakes job, as well as his strained relationships with his ex-wife and father.
With his identity exposed, drug pilot Drew Thompson (Jim Beaver) is on the run from Raylan's (Timothy Olyphant) law enforcement dragnet and Boyd's (Walton Goggins) plan to turn him over to the Detroit mob.
