Storyline

Avery Paul, a former professional boxer, has been drifting since his release from prison, he convicted on trumped up charges of smuggling. That conviction led to him losing his boxing license. In addition to his long-shore work on the Halifax docks, he supplements his meager income by illegal street fights, which are posted online. It is through one of those videos that he comes to the attention of a woman named Ava, who hires him to retrieve by what will need to be by clandestine and forceable means her runaway half-sister Jan, a drug addict living with her boyfriend Tal and his drug dealer partner Donny in a crack house, and return her to her parents. The $20,000 fee, Ava's parents' life savings, would be sufficient for Avery truly to get back on his feet and resume his boxing career. Avery is able to infiltrate the crack house as a supposed junkie and abduct Jan, who is not a willing kidnappee in her constant need to get a fix. In addition to Tal and Donny who each have their own ... Written by Huggo

Entering The Darkness
24 August 2013 | by LeonLouisRicciSee all my reviews

This is a deep, gritty, richly realized Film that is a Low-Budget Story that is a surprising survey of Street Life and Street Characters that explores Addiction, Child Trafficking, Family, and Redemption in more dimensions than is usually expected in this type of thing.

As it unfolds layer upon layer of Personalities and situations that are realistically portrayed as the Director restrains from the usual Cinema Flares and shows this stuff unfettered. The Acting is superb all around and it is an uncompromising look at a Zone that must seem like Twilight to theses Folks who are all on the verge of entering the Darkness.

This unknown and unseen Movie is worth checking out for Neo-Noir Fans and even those who like no-holds-barred Crime Films. it is authentic, compelling and somewhat Original. A Mini-Sleeper that should gain more of an Audience as word gets out.
