After a botched robbery attempt five years ago, Ricky went to jail for his brother Rafael and his buddy Latif. Now that he is back out of jail, Latif wants to show his gratitude: he says he has a surefire scheme to get rich quickly, and Ricky could use the money to set up his new life. Ricky hesitates at first but then agrees. Complications arise as soon as some preparations start. Things kept going out in awry, especially as a form of hardup policewoman Diana.
Not a bad production, mostly because of good acting and kind of authentic sounding dialogues. But I wonder how many times this type of movie (authentic gangster trapped between family and milieu after a failed job) has to be made over and over again. The role model for this is clearly the Pusher trilogy by Nicolas Winding Refn. It seems to me, that these copies of his style function as practice fields for authenticity and so they will always be what they are: mediocre copies of the classics.
