One year after the death of his best friend, Sam (Sung Kang) returns to Los Angeles determined to find redemption from the past. His mentor and only friend is a retired gangster with a parallel desire to leave the former world behind. Sam comes back not only to avenge the death of a friend, but also to win back his love (Kelly Hu). But as Sam tries to balance revenge with reconciliation, he is drawn into the shadowy world he had left behind. Can he undo his mistakes before losing what he came back to save?

“(Chris Chan Lee’s) new film is an energetic, visually stunning and absorbing neo noir about a Korean American gangster (the excellent Sung Kang) who returns to L.A. after a mysterious absence determined to rectify the past.” — G. Allen Johnson, SF Chronicle
