COMMENTS: THIS ACTION DRAMA, WITH HARROWING AND SUSPENSEFUL TONES INTERROGATES THE LENGTHS A MAN WILL GO TO, TO PROTECT HIS FAMILY FROM RUTHLESS THIEVES AND DRUG SMUGGLERS. THEMES INCLUDE DRUG SMUGGLING, FAMILY SURVIVAL, FAMILY PROTECTION AND DEFENCE, REVENGE AND RUTHLESS KILLINGS. THIS IS WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF A FAMILY MAN DEALING WITH THE CHALLENGES OF A FATHER WITH ALZHEIMERS.
THE CONSTANT PURSUIT BY THE THIEVES TO KILL THE FAMILY AND TAKE BACK THE DRUGS, ADDS A STRONG SENSE OF THREAT AND MENACE TO THE PLOT. THESE COMPLEX AND MATURE THEMES HAVE A POSITIVE OUTCOME IN THAT THE GOOD OVERCOMES EVIL, BUT NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF STRONG VIOLENCE INCLUDING THE DEATH OF FAMILY MEMBERS. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE POSITIVE MESSAGES OF SURVIVAL AND PROTECTION OF THE FAMILY AGAINST EVIL, CHILDREN BELOW THE AGE OF 16 YEARS WILL BE PSYCHOLOGICALLY HARMED AND DISTURBED BY THE GRAPHIC AND REALISTIC USE OF VIOLENCE AND LANGUAGE TO EXPLORE THESE THEMES.
