Reservoir Dogs


RESERVOIR DOGS is a darkly drawn and powerfully affecting character study.

Etched against a tapestry of action, intrigue, and treachery, the story explores how the shattered precision of a major heist gone awry impacts upon the lives of the men who engineered it.

Thrown together in a large warehouse hideout after an attempted jewelry job is blundered and has resulted in a bloody shootout with the police, one robber is slowly dying while his accomplices turn on one another suspecting the heist was a set-up.

Loyalties erode, suspicions build, and accusations fly as paranoia envelopes the group pushing their internal tensions to a breaking point climaxing with both shocking and surprising resolve.
