The movie's plot is a familiar one. In the opening act, we see a plucky young man, blessed with some good looks and a seedling of talent. Determined to make more of himself, he leaves the war-torn land of his birth and travels to the States in search of something bigger - new hope, new life, New York.

At first, things go well for our youngster, who settles into the American way, success in this dog-eat-dog city adding a swagger to his imposing frame. Then tragedy strikes. A crime is committed, a woman is harmed and our protagonist is left reeling. Filled with rage, he appoints himself her protector, her avenger, and takes to the streets in search of violence - ready to kill an innocent stranger to sate his own thirst for revenge.
