Upon his release from prison, Fish is brought to an abandoned restaurant by his old associate, Duke, to celebrate his newfound freedom. However, there's unfinished business that Duke is determined to solve.
Fish has spent six years in jail. Six years alone. Six years keeping his mouth shut about the robbery, about the other men involved. The night he is released, the four men he protected with silence celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman. The sushi girl seems catatonic, trained to ignore everything in the room, even if things become dangerous. Sure enough, the four unwieldy thieves can't help but open old wounds in an attempt to find their missing loot.Written by

Well made and quite surprising, a perfect B movie. Except Tony Todd none were familiar to me. I was not expecting anything, I knew the limit of B movie's budget so no disappointment with second stream actors and production quality. All I needed was something new that big star and big budget movie won't offer in such a style. And got it.
The story begins with a man being released after completing his 6 year term in the prison who was in for a robbery. He was picked by his gangmates who are arranged to celebrate it in a sorta Japanese hotel. So the real story begins there when they started to dig the 6 years old robbery incident that went wrong. They all wanted to know where is the robbed items and of course the equal share. They talk then it turns into torture and later the chaos situation brings them who and what to believe.
The movie was all about that particular incident and about the missing robbed items. So the 80% of the movie has been just the investigation to reveal its flashback in pieces. And then the twist came, I really did not know it was coming, it surprised me a little. That turn in the story made whole movie look better than what one can expect from a mystery movie. It was not a QT's movie or Alfie's and all the above it was not a masterpiece but a simple, low budget's wonder. There are many amazing B movies and it is one of it and never compare those with A movies.
