While returning home after fixing the lights of a billboard, the worker Vincent Harris passes by a taxi with a damage door panel. When Vincent arrives home, he finds his wife murdered on the floor of the living room. He claims that the driver was wearing a red jacket and a ring with a large stone. Three years later, he lives in Brooklyn but is still chasing the killer of his wife. His dysfunctional neighbor Alice Parker has a crush on him, but Vincent is haunted by the ghosts of his past. When Alice meets the cab driver Roger Culkin out of the blue, she seduces him, damages his taxi and gives a red jacked and a ring to him. Then she forces him to meet Vincent, inventing a culprit to release Vincent from his past and stay with her. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Total waste of time.

A boring mish-mash of crap! We had taped it and it was indicated to be a four star movie so we watched it. How does one get revenge on an unknown someone who has to be nuts to give it more than one star? The French female lead has lips that made you think that if you had to leave her for a while that all you had to do was stick her to the wall with them and she would be there when you returned.

I kept hoping that Harvey's boomerang would come back and hit him in the head and put us all out of the misery of this whatever-it-was.

We know someone who says he is a "screen writer" but has never yet sold anything after years and years of trying. When we see a piece of stuff like this, we turn to each other and say, "Dan could have written that!"
