New Zealand: Crime Thriller / Noir, 85 minutes

Blue Moon

Horace Jones, near bankrupt, takes the overnight shift at one of his failing businesses. But when a suspiciously large bag of cash comes into his hands, his chaotic but safe existence comes under threat as gang enforcer Darren Cates arrives to reclaim the cash. Unfortunately Horace has the money in the time-lock safe: they’ll have to wait until 6am to open it. But Horace realises there’s something horribly familiar about Darren: the past has come back with a vengeance.
