This movie is amazing. I have never heard of it before I accidentally ran into it at the video store and I am very glad I picked it up. Although the story is fairly simple, the way it is portrayed is amazing. The dialogue of the characters, their actions, the scenery. Everything sets the mood of a very emotional film. By the end you start to feel like you are one of the characters and picturing what you would do in this situation.
The plot is basically a few start-up polish businessmen become mixed up with the mob and end up owing a debt to them. After the friends refuse to pay it, the mob starts to threaten them and their families.
