Naturally, he is sent straight to jail but It doesn't take long before he befriends a big time crime boss inside, but the plot thickens when it transpires that the young man is actually not who we think he is. the two execute a successful escape and we soon find out that we don't really know the true background of these criminals or what is really motivating them. franco Prosperi (Last House on the Beach) directs this revenge themed crime film with Ray Lovelock and Elke Sommer.

Reviews

"From Italian director Franco Prosperi comes an entertaining crime flick for fans of European hardboiled cinema of the seventies with a truly remarkable motorcycle chasing a lorry- scene which includes either real crash footage or the most convincing effects I've ever seen." - DVDTALK
