“Brilliantly, heart-poundingly suspenseful. Part Jean-Pierre Melville, part Walter Hill, part Scorsese… a fast-paced thriller that delivers all the goods!” -Daily Film Dose

In an old apartment building on the wrong side of the tracks, Galia and Eleanor share two things: an adjoining wall and a need to escape. Galia is an assassin, forced against her will to kill for the Mafia. She longs for her freedom and to reunite with her young daughter, whom she left back in Russia. Eleanor is a grocery store cashier who dreams of winning the lottery and running away from her abusive husband. The two women unite to take action against their oppressors in an action-packed fight for survival and freedom.
