Synopsis

Tired of their mundane lives working on a street food stall in the poor side of town, Bex and Dawn dream of opening their own up-market café but the banks all reject their business loan applications. In the current economic climate, no-one will take a risk on them until they meet Jeremy, an independent businessman who offers to fund their vision. They accept, thrilled at first - but all too soon the true motives for Jeremy's kind offer become evident. He is a vicious loan shark and his ways and means are as unforgiving as his capacity for terror and cruelty.
Unable to meet his outrageous payment demands, Bex and Dawn must find it within themselves to turn the tables on their malicious aggressor, leading to a maelstrom of bloody, savage and pitiless retribution.
