This feature is certainly not a crime flick but a mix-up between drama and thriller. The whole stuff is pulled by a solid directing and more than realistic performances, especially from the lead female character. She plays a young widow, mother of two sons: a child and his elder brother, a teenager. The latest gets involved with petty hoodlums who are aware that the mother is a jewellery store employee, and of course they want to get advantage of this and blackmail the youngster so that he helps them to rob the store. The plot may be not always believable but, I repeat, the performances look so real, that the audience has the feeling to watch an actual life scenery. And you also have a very unexpected ending.
