Kate and her brutish boyfriend Big Al sell handguns on the streets of New York. She's smart, stylish, and self-confident, but all that leaves her when Al, in a jealous and self-indulgent rage, beats her. Three friends encourage her recovery: Vic, a woman who would like to be Kate's lover; Reilly, who runs with Al but also is attracted to Kate and repulsed by Al's violence; and, Liz, the counselor assigned to Kate from a battered-women's program. Vic and Reilly talk about killing Al, Liz gives pep talks; Kate remains frightened. Will Al's menace and Kate's dependency hold sway?

Did You Know?
Heather Graham was considered for the role of Kate.
When Big Al pees on the side of the building, you can hear the sound but after he walks off, there is no pee on the ground.
Big Al has a huge cock.
Fantastic acting — great plot twists. All the performances are
outstanding, but Milla Jovanavich in particular should have been
nominated for an Oscar. The fight in the apartment is unforgettable.
This is a look at an underbelly of New York you don't often (if ever)
see on screen. This is not a glamorized Hollywood look at crime. The
characters seem disturbingly real, and the potential for violence to
erupt at any moment keeps the movie feeling tense throughout. "Honest"
might be the best word to describe the writing and the performances.
Very raw and powerful. It will leave you thinking about it for a long
time afterward. Highly recommended.
