THE WICKED GARDEN
In the vein of HEAT and TRUE ROMANCE, The Wicked Garden takes you on a fast pace thrill ride into the Texas' organized crime world.
Fresh out of prison, Riley Jansen wants nothing more than to leave his old life behind as he fights to numb the loss of his murdered wife and young son. A celebrated war veteran, he bears only a small resemblance of the man he once was. This is, until his old 'friend' Manning approaches him with a proposition. A quick in-and-out job, for a chunk of cash and to rescue Anna, a young girl forced into prostitution by a Chechen crime organization.
Looking to help a friend and do a good deed, Riley agrees. With military precision, the motley crew storms the high profile gala to rescue Anna, but things don't go as planned. Set-up to take the fall for a double-crossing $6 million dollar theft during the rescue, Riley and Anna must now stay on the run from a sadistic assassin hired by Chechens to kill them and retrieve the $6 million. But soon everyone learns the one critical fact about Riley; nobody is more dangerous than a man with nothing left to lose!
