Logline: When a weary hitman botches a kill, another one arrives to clean up the mess. As the two rivals head for a showdown, neither one knows that they are father and son.
LOGLINE - When a Russian-American hitman botches the killing of an American traitor gone rogue, another assassin arrives from Cuba to clean up the mess. As the two rivals head toward a showdown, they don't know that they are father and son.

SYNOPSIS - A character-driven action-thriller. When Russian-American VIKTOR CHENKO, a weary Brooklyn hitman, botches a Moscow contract, he becomes the next target. Assigned to silence an unstable CONSTANCE OBRAHOFF, an American traitor who spied for the Kremlin, Viktor and LEO, his Russian mob boss, know they're dead unless they immediately find and kill her. As Viktor dives into New York's underbelly in search of the rogue spy, a young black assassin, ALEKSAI GARZA, arrives from Havana with his own counter-orders from Moscow: Eliminate Viktor and Leo the moment "the ******** is dead. In what will evolve into an escalating cat-and-mouse scenario, Aleksai soon worms his way into Viktor's world with a heroic life-saving favor. In gratitude Viktor opens the gates, giving Aleksai close access to both Viktor and Leo to stick a knife in each one.

If Viktor has dropped his guard, it's because he's busy. During one long adventurous night scouring New York following leads, like a detective, Viktor finally comes upon the elusive Constance in an isolated Long Island shack. But the runaway spy is not alone. First, Viktor must tangle with Constance's gun-toting manic friend and protector, a huge female professional fighter who ****ed near kills Viktor bare-handed. Meanwhile, back in Brooklyn, Aleksai gut-knifes Leo. But not before the dying mob chief spills the beans to Aleksai that he is Viktor's son.

With both the spy and Leo now dead, all that's left is the father and son showdown. Never mind that unforgettable night when Aleksai and Viktor united to survive a mob gun battle, the two men are now on an irreversible course that was paved long ago by Aleksai's white UNCLE CHANO. A notorious fixer back in Cuba, Chano is bent on carrying out his long-held vendetta against Viktor, the "murderer" of MARISOL, Chano's Afro-Cuban niece and Aleksai's mother. It's Uncle Chano's decades of vengeful influence that fueled Aleksai's anger upon hearing he's Viktor's son. And that's why the kill is still on.

In the film's final twist ending, Marisol's murderer of twenty years ago is revealed, yet the killer must forever remain unknown. # #
