The Stonewarden family have been wardens of gems for generations. As the way people live has changed, so has this family's ways of living. All members must become part of the working jewel thief gang when they turn 19. The youngest of the family, Charlie, is against doing what her father and brothers do. During a shooting she meets Ash, someone also desperate to be free of his parents lifestyle.
