DogPosted in 2014, Action, Featurette, United Kingdom
Dog is the local Triad enforcer, a simple gangster, addicted to violence, bound by a strict honor code. Standing outside an old warehouse Xian, the Boss’s right hand man takes a phone call confirming the order to go in and clear out the current occupants. Dog duly obliges, brutally laying the smack down to a group of scumbags.
As he leans in to light a post-fight cigarette he hears a noise, women’s voices and goes to investigate. He finds a group of what can only be prostitutes hiding out and makes as if to beat them too but relents. The boss calls again, ordering Dog to guard the building for a few weeks to ensure the gang don’t repossess it. Dog must not leave. He accepts but is clearly not happy. Dog’s life inside is one of routine, training, cooking noodles, patrolling the premises. But soon it’s clear that his need for violence is taking over, driving him mad.40 minutes
