Jarvis is certain that a healthy confrontation with the child molester who abused him when he was a boy is the answer to all of his problems, so he heads to Richmond, Virginia to face his former tormentor. But he gets side-tracked along the way, and his narrow world is blown open by an assortment of off-the-wall characters, including a tattooed punk rock mannequin artist who inspires him with her fearless appetite for life. When the climactic confrontation with the defiant pedophile becomes a chaotic exercise in firearms, corkscrews, bitch slaps and mannequin sex, Jarvis discovers that he will never be the same again.
