After two decades under a ruthless Iranian mobster, Behrouz leaves the underworld to follow his American Dream. But after a chance encounter involving a high-stakes poker game, he is brought back into the life he left behind. With the help of his Russian girlfriend, Oksana, he must hunt down some missing drugs belonging to his ex-boss, as events from his past and present clash; spiralling out of control.
