Convinced that one last score can put his criminal life behind him for good, Vuke hooks up with Shy Mehlman, the old-school to the core boss of Youngstown’s Jewish crime syndicate. As he tries to stay one step ahead of the mob boss he owes a gambling debt, the girlfriend he owes affection, the vulnerable ten year-old street urchin he knows can only drag him down, the secret service agents protecting a mysterious shipment he has his eyes on, and – ominously – the increasingly real visions of the demon (Pasglav) that has haunted his dreams since youth, Vuke agrees against his better judgment to help pull a job that was so easy he knew it had to fail.
