Cast & Credits

Synopsis

On a June morning in Los Angeles, two men are caught in the same traffic jam. One, D-Fens, abandons his car and goes on a spree of crime after being laid-off at work and finding the stress of life and the absurdities of modern day living too much. The other, Detective Martin Prendergast, is fulfilling his last day of duty and finds himself on the trail of D-Fens.
