Storyline

When a young man new in town, the impressionable Chris Donds (Esteban Powell), is drawn into the super wealthy scene of Los Angeles after dark, he confuses his morals and beliefs for absolution and opportunity... the life that dreams as fast as it lives. His new lifestyle of carousing and daredevil brushes with the law leads up to an entanglement with the Russian mafia. Soon, Chris finds that his wealth cannot protect him and his friends from the retribution coming their way. Written by Larry B.

A fresh movie in the genre of Pulp Fiction
4 September 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie for its strong acting, its spontaneity, some fresh and clever dialogue, and especially for its editing. This film is reminiscent of the genre of Pulp Fiction. It has excellent casting of young talent that is certainly on the rise. Given its graphic violence, this movie for the serious, adult movie goer.
