Robert Atkinson bank clerk, gambler and loser in life thieves £50,000 from his bank loses it all. Enter the triads who give him a chance to redeem himself by exchanging cases, what could be simpler. Well he goes to Amsterdam, gets roped in by a DEA agent and then things get darker. Never accept hospitality from a beautiful woman you never know what you're in for. It's stylishly shot for a british film, the acting isn't bad, it keeps you interested right to the end.
