Storyline

Six years ago Joey's life changed totally. A shop owner who lay in a pool of blood claimed that Joey was the perpetrator. Now the time is served and Joey has scars on both his body and his soul. He is determined to never go back to prison. He seeks his elder brother Tommy who has begun dealing drugs and is now married to a beautiful blonde named Lorraine. She is at first sceptical about Joey staying there, but soon they develop a special relationship. Written by Fredrik Klasson <fredrik.klasson@boras.mail.telia.com>

Joey: It's funny, you think something is over, you know? After a certain amount of time passes, then you see 'em, it's like a rubber band snaps you back. And you realize, maybe it's not over after all. At least not for you.

convicted felon returns home to more trouble
4 April 1999 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

An ex-con is released from the pen and returns home determined to go straight. He moves in with his brother and sister-in-law and learns of his brother's troubles with a local crime organization. The brother's problems excalate to the breaking point when the thugs demand more money than he has. This was a good show, however it had several flaws; namely the gunfire sounded like underpowered fireworks, and some of the kicks and punches were obviously not connecting. Extremely violent, with buckets of blood.
