  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Jacob King arrives in Los Angeles from Cape Town looking for his missing younger sister. A stranger in a strange land, he has $600 in his pocket and a return ticket home in seven days. Within twenty-four hours Jacob King knows his sister is dead. This is the story of what happens in the next six days.
As he searches for his sister’s killers King’s journey propels him deep into the LA underworld and its intersection with Hollywood high society. His pursuit of revenge will lay bare a network of depravity that stretches from the dive-bars of the gang heartlands to the glitz of the Hills.
