Storyline

In an old apartment building on the wrong side of the tracks, two women, unknown to each other, live across the hall on the second floor. Galia is an assassin involved against her will with the local sex-traffic mafia. All she wants is to reunite with her little daughter that she left back home in Ukraine. Eleanor is a grocery store cashier and a battered wife. She dreams of winning the lottery and running away from her abusive husband. Galia and Eleanor don't know each other, but as neighbors they share two things: an adjoining wall and a strong need to plan their escape. As Galia disobeys her latest contract, a woman target, and Eleanor discovers that she's pregnant, the two women decide to take action against their oppressors in a fight for survival and freedom.

Goofs

In the shootout on the bus, Galia, who appears to have a 9mm Beretta, continues to fire 19-20 bullets in a row before running out of ammo without reloading. Such a gun, depending on the magazine size, should only have 12-15 bullets. See more »

Nice try
17 August 2010 | by maskygenSee all my reviews

-- Review contains spoilers I liked the actors,I hated the story and music.

The movie has some really powerful scenes, in which we get a glimpse of the real human trafficking.

The story is beyond stupidity: A runaway mother from her mentally retarded child, which somehow is sold as a sex-slave in Israel, reached to become a bad ass assassin which kills all her owners + bodyguards and become friends with a sexy husband abused woman.

The action, is not really good and frankly the Hollywood stereotype of spaghetti arms assassins, it's getting boring. Actually the only good scenes are the ones where the girls talk and when we see some European human trafficker mentality towards his salves.
