Three women in masks - Joelene (Jasmine Day), Lee (Matison Card) and Jamie (Brittney Carpenter) - execute a young man, Ronan (Cody Alban), and do an expert job of getting rid of the body, the weapon, and they make a getaway to a safe house, where they and their driver Craig (Jesse Davis) are to spend the next 40 or so days to then try to make it out of the country. Problem here is, Ronan was not just any young guy, he was the son of Senator Kelly (Andrew Hook), and the senator wants the death of his boy avenged, and in contrast to his official law-and-order attitude he hires professional hitman No. 1 (Ryan Fredericks) to kill whoever's responsible for his boy's death. And that's not too hard to figure out, because the girls had a strong motive to kill Ronan, as he took Joelene and her best friend Julia (Maddie Steele) captive, shot Julia dead and raped and tortured Joelene in front of her dead body - and despite all the evidence, he went away scot free for being the son of a senator. But Lee has planned the execution and also the getaway well, so if the girls and Craig avoid any contact to the outside world, including just stepping outside, there's no way they even can be found. Problem is, Jamie has a boyfriend and has smuggled a cellphone into the house to call him every now and again, and Craig has a drug problem and has to see his dealer ever so often. All clues No. 1 uses to gradually track down the girls without them even knowing he's coming ...


A pretty tight thriller that somehow manages to turn its rather far-fetched premise into a believable and even relatable story, thanks to nicely drawn, interesting characters with enough depth to keep an audience engaged, and enough fallability to keep the tension up. And of course, a nicely structured script with suspense and outbursts of violence in all the right places and a genre savvy directorial effort also help in make this a very thrilling piece of entertainment.
