A Bag of Hammers takes place in California and is about two best friends named Ben (Jason Ritter) and Alan (Jake Sandvig). They steal cars for a living; they hold a “Valet Parking” sign at cemeteries and then run off with the cars they’re supposed to park. When a woman rents out the front of the house they live in, everything changes for Ben and Alan. The woman has a twelve year old son named Kelsey (Chandler Canterbury). She can’t find a job and neglects her child. As a last resort, she kills herself. Ben and Alan take matters into their own hands when they decide to take care of Kelsey.
