1. Plot

The film stars Tomer Sisley as Vincent, a police detective who plans to rob a pair of drug couriers when he finds that the cocaine he has is owned by nightclub owner and drug dealer Jose Marciano Serge Riaboukine. Marciano kidnaps Vincents son with the demand that he will be returned if his cocaine is returned. Just as Vincent finalizes the deal, he finds that his cocaine has vanished. The rest of the story focuses on him finding an alternate way to save his son.


2. Production

Actor Tomer Sisley took the role in the immediately after reading the script. Sisley performed all his own stunts in the film, stating "I think that it is always better for the movie because it allows him to put the camera wherever he wants."

The dance club in the film was built for the film. As a requirement of being a joint Belgian-French-Luxembourgian production, the film had to be partially shot in these locations having the dance club scene shot in Belgium and the kitchen and parking scenes shot in Luxembourg. For the fight scene in the kitchen, director Jardin desired "a fight that would be interesting for people who don’t like fights in films. Not just for crazy people who like kung-fu movies." Sisley was familiar with martial arts and boxing and jujitsu worked on the choreography for the fight scene before having a location or the scene.
