Employed for many years by a Romani kingpin, Charlie’s life is stifled and going nowhere until a blow to the head jars him into a new mindset and makes him question everything he has ever believed as he starts to experience visions that may or may not be real. When his wife urges him to break out on his own, he’s careful – because he knows that one wrong move will land him in a shallow grave.
