Headbanger relics, Terry (Dave Lawrence) and Dean (Paul Spence), are tired of trying to give'r while barely scraping by, so when their old buddy and party leader, Tron (Andrew Sparacino), hooks them up with jobs they head up North to make sweet cash working on the pipelines during the holidays. Flush with money and confidence, Terry starts dating Trish (Terra Hazelton), a local waitress, and things get serious in a hurry. Meanwhile, Dean is playing up the part of 'cancer survivor', and upon hearing about the glories of Worker's Compensation, purposely injures himself in an attempt to qualify. When Terry moves in with Trish, Dean does his best to save his buddy from swapping the banger life for domestic captivity, but it's a lost cause. When the Workers' Compensation Board denies Dean, he starts to double give'r, spiraling out of control. Completely broken by his own self-destruction, Dean must rise to take control and fight for the things that mean the most: his family, his friends, and Christmas.
