Soon the police grew on him and he is put in a dicey situation, at gunpoint he practically has no power left to get the money or help his injured child. The unraveling sequences make the movie full of family drama; a father’s realization at the brink of death in how he failed on being a father at every possible weekend or every holiday. On those days which were supposed to be invested in familial moments, he had always been overwhelmed with work.

Hard Hit Movie Review
The movie brings forth the realization of things that are more important than monetary pursuits. The exceptional character of a daughter trying to save his father; a father at death’s door yet calmly trying to negotiate for his child’s life; an antagonist moaning over his dead wife and unborn child. The lesson that comes with it is that after stomping over someone’s house, you cannot build your own.
