Realistic,Great acting and Video direction.GREAT movie.
9 December 2014 | by innovatingvisionarySee all my reviews

Simple and to the point. It's about a man who is suspected of importing drugs, and the police need him to take a $h*t so they have evidence to prove their suspicions..they are allowed to take him to a hospital for an x ray, but decide to take him to a hotel and wait it out(until he takes a **** )....They can keep him for ten days. He's smuggling a known drug dealers heroin batch, and the drug dealer is out looking for him and his friend.The camera work is fantastic, the acting is great, and the dialog is catchy.. watch it, you wont regret it.
