In The Blood

A criminal gang looks forward to a big payday until Albert Graves their peterman (safecracker/thief) suddenly dies.. Spotting an opportunity, Albert’s grandson Johnny approaches the men at the funeral but is chased out by his abusive father. But the safecracking skills that Johnny has been taught by his grandfather do not escape the gang and that night he’s snatched away to finish the job his granddad began. Held captive by four men all with seemingly different agendas and under constant threat of bloody violence Johnny enters a painful withdrawal from his addiction. Toying with his demons he reluctantly starts to open the safe - while his captors tussle for control and power amongst themselves.
