A bloody revenge tragi-comedy about two feuding Edinburgh families.
** Shortlisted for a Spinetingler Magazine Award in the 'Rising Star' category. **
Andy Park passes out at the sight of blood, but he thinks he's discovered a way to make his family's enemies pay.
He isn't prepared for the fall-out, though. Before long, his teenage son is in mortal danger, and his daughter and her fiancé are knee-deep in corpses. Meanwhile, a masked man known only as Mr Smith is blackmailing Tommy Savage – for what, he has no idea. After an attempt to gain the upper hand has near-fatal results, Tommy and his brother find themselves heading to a graveyard with only a couple of swords and a bag of cash for company.
Will they survive the night? Will anyone?
