Movie Info

A young street tough attempts to make good for his violent transgressions in writer/director Marek Stacharski's gritty urban drama. Stan is a 20-year-old mechanic who has recently become mixed up with a vicious street gang. His mother is usually drunk, and his younger sister grates on his every nerve. In order to get out of the house, Stan prowls the street with his friends looking for trouble. The gang isn't above a little robbery, and one night they even go so far as to gang rape a young woman. Later, Stan is forced to flee from the scene of a crime and injures his leg. Upon arriving at the hospital for treatment, the limping hoodlum recognizes the nurse as the woman he and his friends raped. And the nurse recognizes Stan too, yet remains hesitant to report him to the police after the doctor she is sleeping with discourages her from doing so. As the weight of guilt gradually begins to settle on Stan's chest, he takes a sincere interest in the young nurse and tries to make amends for his actions. Meanwhile, however, the troubled girl begins making preparations to follow her father to America. When Stan attempts to cut his ties to the gang, he quickly discovers that escaping one's past can be a painful, and sometimes deadly, endeavor. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
