The Story

Tam is a young man from a tough housing estate who suffers from debilitating panic attacks when faced with confrontation. Pat, a local widower with a murky past introduces his new protege to a solution in the form of a technique combining modern psychology and ancient Zen.

After handing out their own form of justice to a murderer locally they came to the attention of a frustrated senior detective. Like a toxic batman and robin they are recruited for a city-wide vigilante campaign. The sequence of events that follow Tam’s Faustian pact have a devastating effect on not only himself but those closest to him.
