The film is about rivalry and betrayal between two brothers. One is a candidate for Prime Minister and the other is a henchman for a businessman. When one is given the opportunity to take revenge against the other, he must come to terms with the truth and face a world where trust doesn't exist and loyalty is rare.

The score was composed by British Trance DJ Paul Oakenfold.[4]
