director Daniel Espinosa
delivers this gritty adaptation of Jens Lapidus' best-selling novel Snabba Cash
to tell the tale of a Stockholm business student who gets entangled in a life of crime while attempting to impress a gorgeous heiress. JW (Joel Kinnaman
) comes from meager beginnings, but he's got ambition to spare, and the motivation to succeed. Smitten by the scion of a powerful family, he turns to crime in order to maintain the illusion of wealth. Meanwhile, low-level crook Jorge finds the law closing in on one side, and the Serbian mafia gaining ground on the other. But if his next cocaine deal goes off without a hitch, he'll be set for life. Unfortunately for Jorge, ruthless mob enforced Mrado is closing in fast. But when Mrado must look after his young daughter at the last minute, a simple job turns unexpectedly complex.
