FIRST DIG A HOLE…
When hired killer, Knucks, returns to his burial site with a fresh kill, he finds a mysterious body occupying the hole he left empty. Packing several guns and a lot of bullets, he goes looking for answers. The search, through sleazy strip clubs and criminal–owned bars, takes him into a set–up involving the St. Louis mob and the police. The mafia is moving into a new territory and puts a samurai–sword–wielding assassin on Knucks, along with their most brutal mob soldiers.
Before the night’s over, a lot more holes will be dug.
