Superb film for the budget
1 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a superb film for the tiny documented budget. The cinematography is superb, it has a solid script and the acting is excellent.

A man (Daniel) witnesses the savage murder of his wife by a gang of masked intruders. They beat him and he suffers a broken back and ends up in a wheelchair with a lady taking care of him. He is deeply depressed and obsessed with finding who is responsible. The police seem to have given up.

A friend offers to help Daniel by introducing him to someone that will be able to help but it's not the usual kind of help. He's not really told anymore than that but agrees to meet with this mysterious stranger.

The stranger is very cryptic, he won't give a straight answer but states he can help find the killers but that Daniel will never be the same again. His life will never go back to how it once was. Daniel agrees, all he wants is to bring the killers to justice.

After having a drink with the mysterious stranger Daniel passes out and begins going through changes. He tries to contact his friend but cannot get him of the phone. He is confused and doesn't know what's happening.

Obviously as a viewer you know what's happening to Daniel and you feel sorry for him. Sorry that he has made a deal with the devil and there is no turning back.
