An ageing bouncer struggles to raise his 8-year-old daughter when he becomes involved with the criminal underworld.
Another year, another direct-to-dvd release starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, the craggy-faced Muscles from Brussels whose career went to the ‘I’m Too Old For This Shit’ school of action movies way too early and made him a regular on the shelves of supermarket entertainment isles across the land.

Jcvd plays Lukas, an aging nightclub bouncer struggling to raise his 8-year-old daughter
