After giving up a life of cocaine trafficking, a man (Dan) vows to stay on the straight and narrow. But he's offered a one-time opportunity to achieve his life dream : moving to Australia with his daughter. He accepts the deal and starts a downward spiral sucking him back into 24 hours of hell where he has to save his daughter and survive by any means.Written by
Dan Bronchinson basically plays a fictionalized version of himself. During a screening at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival 2015, he remarked that 'about 75%' of the story was true. See more »
Sometimes that sounds easier than it is. Like in this case. Or best laid plans as they say. But I really liked the movie. I like the roughness, the not holding back (violence wise it really gets mean and really can grip you too). Of course a lot of things happen in a short time, which some might feel (rightfully so), to be unlikely. But it is a movie and a short one at that, and it does a really good job selling us the frantic pace it sets out for itself.
The acting is OK, the cinematography is fitting for the raw nature of the movie. All those things go hand in hand with the directing and the tight script. Again: All considering this isn't a big budget movie and of course not a classic. But not every movie has to be (or can be) a classic. It's more than enough to do a good job and entertain the viewer - one way or another
