Description

Jimmy Veeder and Bobby Maves are back at it, two years after the events of Dove Season they re not exactly the luckiest guys in the Imperial Valley, but, hey, they win more fights than they lose.

Settled on his own farmland and living like a true family man after years of irresponsible fun, Jimmy's got a straight life cut out for him. But he's knocking years off that life thanks to fun-yet-dangerous Bobby's booze-addled antics especially now that Bobby is single, volatile as ever, and bored as hell.

When Bobby's teenage daughter goes missing, he and Jimmy take off on a misadventure that starts out as merely unfortunate and escalates to downright calamitous. Bobby won t hesitate to kick a hornets nest to get the girl to safety, but when the rescue mission goes riotously sideways, the duo's grit and loyalty to each other is put to the test.
