When Peter tries to slip a roofie into a target’s drink, he triggers events that lead to blackmail and harsh street justice. To defend himself, he sends his unsuspecting fiancée, Lizzie, into the scariest neighborhood in Chicago to buy the protection he needs from, of all places, a taco truck.
Ever subservient because she knows a Plain Jane like her doesn’t deserve him, Lizzie fights back her terror and resolves to help Peter however she can, even in ways hidden from him.
