Storyline

One morning, the cops find eight dead bodies, gunshot victims, near a farmhouse. They also find a wounded man who tells the story of what happened. He is Alan White (Sir John Hurt), the father of a young woman awaiting a heart transplant. The night before, his wounded son Danny (Nick Moran) has come to him with a tale of a kidnapping gone wrong. Danny, whom Alan hasn't seen for eight years, offers a deal. If Alan will pose as a kidnapping victim, which will lead to his death, Danny will donate his heart for his sister's transplant. If Alan refuses, then Danny and his friends, the "new blood" hired to help with the kidnapping, will die. What will Alan do, and what's really going on here? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

After already being hired for the movie, Nick Moran was denied permission to enter Canada for the shoot, because of an old drunk driving conviction. The Canadian consulate told him no one can enter the country with a criminal record. After several weeks of trying to get a waiver for his conviction, he finally got it, and was able to film the movie. See more »

Story telling at its best
22 September 2002 | by jo_gatlinpicturesSee all my reviews

Quite how this great little movie has slipped undetected is a mystery. A great cast bring real life to a wonderfully twisty narrative that whilst inevitably drawing comparisons to Tarantino and Guy Richie by the nature of the genre, appears fresh and exciting. Don't be put off by the straight to video title, Hurst's ability as a writer is more than matched by his skill behind the camera and he never loses his grip on a story that in other hands might have become a tedious and confusing mess. This is story telling at its best.
