In this contemporary take on film noir. When Tom is implicated in the murder of his friend and employee, he is forced to unravel Kasia's complex web of lies.

I liked this film. It was sharp. Not everyone will get it. But those who do will love it. Elina Löwensohn is a gem, a real star and the supporting cast is overall very good. Michael J. Burg doing his best Udo Keir/Peter Lorre is sinister, yet tongue in cheek fun. I thought the film noir style was well done. I mean Bogart would have been better than Adam Nee, but so what. Mr. Nee is a star of tomorrow and he was awesome. Not sure everyone in the audience got the MALTESE FALCON homage - but I did. Loved it. Too bad more indie directors don't get the money to create, thats what I really liked about this movie - it clearly was a new director's vision brought to life without studio crap bogging it down. I hope the internet conspiracy guys find this movie - they will love it's humor. Project Monarch? Awesome.
