A man takes on a drug cartel after his brother is murdered in this bottom barrell 80's action flick. All Steve (Rand Martin) wanted to do was open up an Iranian restaurant with his family, but when his brother winds up in the morgue while running drugs for the evil boss, Macintosh, all bets are off for the moustached hero. Director Jamshid Sheibani aimed to make a statement about the prejudice against Iranians with the film (thus the subplot taking place during the Iranian hostage crisis), although at some point, the film ballooned into a magestic hunk of cinematic junk thanks to its absurd dubbing and all-around amateur production values. Other than this, the film remains mainly a mystery, as its only release before hitting Netflix Streaming was a rare Greek VHS.
