In 1984, Danny - a lonely factory worker intimidated by life - is battered and humiliated in front of his kids in a random act of violence. His already bleak existence sinks further into the abyss. On the verge of total breakdown, he decides to fight back.

He meets a group of nightclub doormen who take him in and give him the confidence to stand his ground. As he is drawn deeper into their world, he becomes embroiled with the local gangland boss, setting in motion a chain of events with shockingly brutal consequences.



Empire gave the film three stars out of five stating "Performances are varied, but it overcomes its low budget with a suspenseful story, sympathetic leads and cracking ’80s soundtrack."[1]
