Storyline

Billy Forsetti has grown up poor, desperate and angry. His best friend, Mikey, has taught him how to steal and fight his way through life. Add a couple of friends, and introduce the world of carjacking-amateurs seeking thrills and cash-it all leads to an intoxicating time. But when Mikey and Billy's values collide over where to draw the line, Mikey explodes and Billy finds himself estranged and wanting to move on. Billy takes up with a beautiful girl and finds a more promising life. But when a carjacking goes wrong, his past becomes a shadow that darkens and threatens his future. Mistrust, jealousy and fear will chase Billy down a rabbit hole that might leave him no way out.

A Very Well Done Indie Film
16 June 2018 | by arffyoung-15223See all my reviews

I had been very interested in this film since it's announcement on Kickstart. A huge fan of Ms. Benoist, I wanted to see her in a story out of her normal realm of features. I wasn't dissapointed. This film is gritty and I found it easy to connect with the characters and their situations both good and bad. The ending was done quite well and unlike most Indie's doesn't leave you guessing as to the cause and effect of the character's actions.I found myself hoping for Billy to climb out of the situation(s) he found himself in. I watched it in a theater and later shared with friends from home. One film I will long remember. Good Job!!!!!
