Dillon is left for dead by his partners in crime, the Crime Queen they ripped off wants them all found. The question is who will find who first. 

 

  

 

I love crime drama, and I read a ton of it. Elmore Leonard, Hammett, Bruen & Starr, Thompson, Ellroy, Chandler, Woolrich, McBain, Block and while I was working on this script a lot of Donald E. Westlake. Or, rather Richard Stark. Stark is an alias Westlake adopted to produce a series of hardboiled crime novels with the character of Parker.

 

Many of those Parker novels were made in to films, yet Stark, or rather Westlake forbid the filmmakers from using Parker's name. Basically, creating a weird disconnected franchise of films with Parker-esque characters doing what Parker would do. Essentially, but not exactly since film adapts what it wants and jettisons the rest. You've might have seen these film, the brilliant Point Blank starring Lee Marvin is one of these films, as is Jean-Luc Godard's Made in U.S.A. with Anna Karina as the Parker character, Robert DuVall played one in The Outfit and Mel Gibson did as well in Payback. To this date only Jason Statham actually played Parker in, Parker. 

 

So, I thought, why not add to this. Do a Parker type character, yet don't call him Parker, and don't adapt a Parker novel. 

 

Dylan, (Michael Chobanoff) is my Parker type character. And he's Irish to make him a little more different, in fact his crew is Irish. People he's grown up with, and known for a long time. And to make this even more different, he does what he does for the love of his girlfriend, Maggie (Anieya Walker). Parker rarely loves, it's all about the job to him. This is all about the job, but his love for Maggie drives his actions throughout this. Plus, the heist isn't that important. It's the aftermath. It's dealing with the fallout. And Maggie shows us that she isn't just a love interest, but a skilled partner for Dylan as well. 

 

Like all great crime fiction, there's betrayal, intrigue, action and sex. People who would stab you in the back for a few measly bucks. Dylan's crew wants in in on a heist, which Dylan resists, but relents out of loyalty to Pops (Kevin Croak) an old timer he's hung with for years. But the person they ripped off, Momma (Niko King) isn't the type of person to let this go. She's a penny pincher that operates a big human trafficking hub in the city, farming runaways and girls out for sex work, while cornering the drug market and keeping crooked cops on the payroll.
