Charlie (Dan Coplan) is a down-on-his-luck documentary filmmaker who's serious about his craft and able to turn out really powerful stuff given the chance - but he's also always chasing after the next paycheck, so when Russian oligarch Boris Levashov (Chris Game) hires him to interview billionaire John T. Conover (Robert Davi), who has been living the last 15 years as a recluse and shuns all publicity, Charlie gladly accept, as the money offered should get him through a whole year easily. He has no idea how to find Conover though, and has only a couple of clues, one's a comedy club, the other's a woman, America (Leona Paraminski) - and somehow that's enough to attract the attention of Conover, who out of the blue invites him to his yacht. And it turns out things couldn't go any better, not only does Conover agree to do the interview, also that woman, America, falls madly in love with him - and vice versa. Sure, it turns out she has a rare blood disease and might die within weeks, but then it turns out he would be the ideal donor for her. So everything couldn't be better - until, not long after the interview Conover is been found murdered, Charlie's apartment has been ransacked and all the footage he has taken has been stolen, and somehow he has gotten in the middle of some big-time exonomic conspiracy he hasn't even known existed, and it's right then when America's condition suddenly worsens, and she needs Charlie's blood, now ...


An interesting mix of neo noir (with quite some parallels to Roman Polanski's Chinatown), romance and melodrama that might not move at the fastest of paces but is well-enough structured to keep one interested throughout, and containing even more surprises than the usual thriller of its ilk. And a subtle directorial effort that invariably chooses story over spectacle, paired with a solid cast, keep things down-to-earth and relatable to grant some nice, laid back genre entertainment.
