Frank is a small-time pusher who sells heroin together with his friend Tony. The heroin is supplied by an ex-Yugoslav dealer, Milo, and safely kept at his hooker girlfriend Vic's apartment. When a heroin deal goes wrong and Frank is busted by the police, he is released because of a lack of evidence, but only to find that he owes a very big debt to Milo who has given him two days to collect the money that will save him from a 9mm bullet.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
The film practically vibrates with youthful aggression, sly humor and gathering tension, hurling itself forward like a junkie toward the next fix.
Outstandingly well-done for a first-time director with no formal training on a shoestring budget, but something about it is unappealingly typical.
Refn's electrifying debut soon morphs into something far more opaque and unsettling than a mere genre retread.
First in a series of 3 films about Copenhagen drug dealers. Sardonic comedy in the "Goodfellas" vein.
The biggest surprise is how you give a damn about what happens to Refn's bad guy--a testament to Bodnia's native likeability.
The director has cooked up a very disturbing film, that is derivative of Pulp Fiction.
