A stunning and uniquely cinematic tale of crime and retribution, soon to be a major movie from David Cronenberg. It was just another quiet day at McKenna's Diner - until a couple of wanted killers walked in looking for trouble. Instead, they got bullets, and Tom McKenna got to be an instant celebrity. That got him attention from the kind of people who never forget a face - even after twenty years. Now, Tom must confront a group of cold-blooded mobsters intent on settling the score. Much as he might deny it, he's a man with a history of violence - and with the lives of his family in the balance, he'll make sure his secret past stays buried forever.
