Can worst enemies become best friends?

Michael Bryce was once a top, triple A level bodyguard, but after a Japanese client of his was shot in the head, he has been downgraded to a second class bodyguard for hire and reduced to protecting drug addicted corporate executives in London.

Meanwhile in The Hague, Vladislav Dukhovich, the tyrannical dictator of Belarus is on trial for crimes against humanity. Unfortunately, he cannot be convicted because anyone who can and would testify against him is quickly and efficiently eliminated by Dukhovich's men.

The only key witness who is left is the notorious hitman Darius Kincaid, currently in prison. After the official transport of Kincaid from London to the Netherlands goes horribly wrong, Bryce is called in to get Kincaid to The Hague alive.

Bryce has to confront past love, past enemies, and decide where he stands. As he and Kincaid race towards The Hague against the clock, each man has his own agenda and must learn to trust the other.

Bloody, brutal and bombastic, this Midnight Run-inspired film is assuredly this Summer's antidote to boring. (freshfiction.tv)
