Storyline

Michelle Wallace is a girl haunted by the demons of her past, having witnessed the brutal murder of her mother at the age of four. Sixteen years on she lives in a run-down boarding house looking forward to a future with her boyfriend away from the squalid life she has been leading. Michelle is befriended by her new neighbour, Charles Paskin, a mysterious middle-aged man. Unbeknown to Michelle, Charles is actually a British government assassin involved in a highly confidential operation. His mission is to retrieve government files about a top secret operation which has been stolen. He has been instructed to dispose anyone associated with these documents, but all is not as it seems. Through a bizarre turn of events, Michelle becomes embroiled in Charles's mission, and a fast-paced story of intrigue and suspense begins to unfold.

Great film, shame about the print.
5 March 2003 | by (Southampton,England) – See all my reviews

A really good film, strong cast, original story, excellent work by an obviously talented DOP (really good atmosphere). Loved the original music score (Guy Michelmore). Saw Howard J Ford's earlier film, Mainline Run, this is not nearly as gritty but a lot more polished. The film print does not do the content justice (don't take your next masterpiece there Mr Ford). Look forward to seeing more films like this from Adrenalin.
