Storyline

Avery Paul, a former professional boxer, has been drifting since his release from prison, he convicted on trumped up charges of smuggling. That conviction led to him losing his boxing license. In addition to his long-shore work on the Halifax docks, he supplements his meager income by illegal street fights, which are posted online. It is through one of those videos that he comes to the attention of a woman named Ava, who hires him to retrieve by what will need to be by clandestine and forceable means her runaway half-sister Jan, a drug addict living with her boyfriend Tal and his drug dealer partner Donny in a crack house, and return her to her parents. The $20,000 fee, Ava's parents' life savings, would be sufficient for Avery truly to get back on his feet and resume his boxing career. Avery is able to infiltrate the crack house as a supposed junkie and abduct Jan, who is not a willing kidnappee in her constant need to get a fix.

WOW, Soooo not what I thought!
22 September 2013 | by (Kailua, HI) – See all my reviews

Honestly, I thought this was going to be a peek at the day in the life of a drug addict whore. Let me tell you, it was far from that! The worse part about this movie was that it was over. Its funny, it did not end when I thought it would and when it finally did conclude, I wanted it to go on and on so that I could see the future lives of the main characters!! This movie has just about everything great films are made of minus humor... but there was really no place for laughs in this journey. It was suspenseful, mysterious and very well acted. It was also painful at times, but in a good way. Give this movie a view... I can't imagine ANYONE not thoroughly enjoying it!
