From the director:
"I think people should watch this film because it speaks to everyone who is currently in a rut in their life, deciding whether or not they are doing the right thing. It is a thrilling tale about a moral conscience living inside of us. Even inside the mind of a hitman, a man who murders for money. Through the generous amount of outside donations, a great cast and crew, and the equipment from the Zaki Gordon Cinematic Arts center, I was able to pull off my vision of a man seeking a second chance in an occupation that refuses to allow it."
