Eddie spends more time drinking and moping about than he does looking for a proper job. After another drunken night on the town, he winds up hospitalised when a band of thugs stab him. Eddie wrongly identifies local Arab boy Ahmed as the principal culprit. While the legal machine gets underway with Ahmed, Eddie attempts to win back his wife and son through a new job. He soon becomes aware of the seriousness of his accusation but will do anything to stand by his proclamation.

In this gripping drama, Finkiel draws a dark portrait of contemporary society: Eddie cannot cope with the pressures of modern life, fighting against the world he lives in that prevents him from being a decent man. The gripping score and intensely driven performances highlight the spiral downfall of Eddie. An act of violence at the film’s end adds a major extratextual blow, reminiscent of the sad realities of violent acts of self justice in the US and Europe in recent years.
