Character study in the form of police action drama
Giving a favour, expecting a favour.
A policeman who believes in his job and wants to carry it out with integrity, faces a massive enemy which is corruption in the police. His partner, his boss are all on the take from drug lords which they are employed to fight.
His life story and struggles join the paths of an impressionable kid who aspires to becomes a boxer as well as a kidnapped actor who tries to stay alive whilst the bargaining for his life goes on.
Well jointed, visceral with plenty of rawness this gem of a police action film is fast paced that unearths emotion but ultimately remains a study about principle, trust and corruption, displaying the fight of a simple man against a Lernaean hydra.
