Storyline

An ex-con attempting to turn over a new leaf and support his talented sister discovers that the past can strike back with a vengeance in this violent underworld thriller. It's been ten years since Justin DeMeers was imprisoned for the murder of his father, and now that he's a free man again Justin is determined to make up for lost time. His younger sister Hayden is a promising young rock star, though her recording career is currently stalling out due to lack of funds. In order to finance Hayden's pricey recording sessions, Justin joins forces with his childhood friend Ethan and begins stealing cars. But just as Hayden lands a recording contract, Justin steals a car filled with heroin. Realizing the potential for profit in the shady discovery, greedy chop shop mechanics Manny and Roland decide to sell the junk and make a quick buck. But rockabilly drug dealer Gino is none too pleased that his drugs have gone missing, and he'll kill anyone who stands in his way as he tries to get them ... Written by Anonymous

Well Done!
16 June 2008 | by kschorSee all my reviews

A Must See! Great music and well made! This is a gem to come out of the indie world...fun to watch and to listen to... The performances were strong and the production value high. There are many reasons to love this film, the main one being it features fresh new faces on the scene and some really clever lines of dialog. The story line is gritty and compelling and while it carries a plot we have seen before, we are thrust into it in a new way. I was impressed with the music and the rock star persona played by Landon Dunning was realistic and since she really is a rising rock star, it fits perfectly. Vincent Riverside as Gino, the rock-a-billy gangster is spectacular and drives the film. There are many interesting performances by secondary characters as well. This is a film worthy of your time.
