Storyline

In the sinful city streets life can be tough on the human heart, and in Laura's world now frequented by junkies, dealers, thugs and cops, she knows, just like the rest of them that losing your head can leave you for dead. A gun-shot reverberates through the city streets intertwining the destinies of all these lost souls;can they outrun it? Or will the truth about love hit them all? Laura is not finding it easy, especially when the nation is transfixed by LAW TV, the televised trial of two cops for viciously beating and shooting Trevor Lyons, a gifted and attractive soccer player; because as it turns out, Jack, her first lover, might just be involved. JIM a snitch paid with heroin is most certainly implicated. But it is RUSSELL, her unexpected new love who triggers the realization of her intense re-occurring dream; and her sexual awakening. Shot of Love; they're all dying to get their hands on it. Written by Anastasia Seis

Probably the worst film ever made
2 July 2007 | by (Oz) – See all my reviews

There is nothing redeeming about this woeful film. It is contrived, racist, completely lacking subtlety, and the voice-over and acting by the female lead is cringe-worthy. The narrative makes no sense, a tangled web of attempted plot points and terrible character development. The worst possible flaw though is the attempt to portray a Aboriginal Vs White conflict. The film's lead female has such wildly racist, biased views and shares them so freely. It is offensive that these far out views are made to seem normal in society. It is such a partisan viewpoint shown in the film, so far flung from reality. The word 'Dope' is used in this film to represent drugs, but it is used so badly and sounds so contrived. Certainly not from 'the streets' where the film tries to set itself.

It is basically unwatchable...

All in all, an appalling effort at film-making. I hope some lessons were learned from this about how not to produce a film. I also hope it has not scared off investors from having faith in local filmmakers.
