The story takes place after the tourist season in a small town near the ocean. They have a saying in this town, "We all go a little crazy in the off season." And thats exactly what they do.
There are 6 main characters in this movie. Each one has their own angle and is looking out for number one. Deception, manipulation and greed are what drives the characters. The movie is about human nature and the way people react (good or bad) in the heat of the moment. Remember, "If you stay still you're dead."
The style in which this is shot and the colors in this movie are awesome. There is a lot of texture and attention to detail. All of this adds to that noir feel. The characters are portrayed very well and the acting is superb. Its amazing how real they are. A real honest look at the dark side. Ten stars. If you like mystery/thrillers about con men, burglars, drifters and life on the run, then you owe it to yourself to see this movie.
