Storyline

Two San Francisco detectives discover a corpse in an abandoned car. From the dead man's wallet and a tape recorder, they determine the man was a money launderer. The story is then told in flashback, narrated by the dead man. Seems he was being pursued after robbing a partner who had been robbing him. Hiding out in a warehouse, he tries to re-establish contact with his children. In the warehouse, he then is contacted by a woman who frequents it because her husband died there and becomes obsessed with its new inhabitant as the reincarnate of her husband. Of course, following all of these goings-on, he ultimately must face down his pursuers. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Quirky and intriguing, well-acted
3 December 2004 | by (Aurora, NY) – See all my reviews

The story line isn't new, but the telling is, and the actors are first class. There are marvelous touches of humor and poignant yet subtle comments on the human condition. It's a cop film, it's film noir, it's a love story, it's a family drama – a well written, beautifully acted film that will intrigue you and also make you angry. You'll be angry (if you have any sense) because you'll have had a rare chance to see an ensemble of Asian American actors you probably never saw before. Only a couple of the actors will be familiar at all, from single roles in a couple of big films. The talent in this cast and crew is remarkable, and most American film goers will never get the chance to notice their work. Spend an evening with this movie and enjoy a rare treat.
