His only granddaughter, the beloved Natasha, has been found dead in her flat after taking an accidental overdose of cocaine and now he is looking for revenge. Determined to find the men responsible, Charley starts by tracking down Natasha’s boyfriend, Tim. Then he finds the small-time dealers who supplied him. Charley’s way of doing business leaves no room for negotiation.
