SMOKER 2012 I fi I

‘I fi I’ “ The prodigal son returns home to a hellhole of corruption and violence. After a senseless attack on the people he cares about, he vows revenge on a one-time-friend turned adversary.” “One man stands alone… But as he gets closer to the source of the corruption, the line between right and wrong gets ever more blurred, and when one man decides to take matters into his own hands things spin wildly out of control.”

“I fi I� is a statement of human character and proof that choices, whether good or bad, will ultimately define our destiny.
