Product Description

Johnny, trying to escape a violent past, hides out in the world's least safe house, sandwiched between a crime den run by a Jamaican gangster and a pirate radio station belonging to a Rasta DJ. When Johnny's former comrade escapes from prison, Johnny faces being dragged back into violence and away from his new love. Johnny's actions ignite a simmering war on two fronts with his drug-dealing neighbor and his former boss. Johnny faces questions of rage, morality, loyalty, and ultimately survival -- played out against a great reggae soundtrack from legendary DJ-producer Adrian Sherwood.
