The ragged story focuses around Casi (John Boyega), an overworked public attorney in New York City, and begins 12 days before something called “the collapse” — when, it’s implied, space and time would somehow rearrange themselves. Casi, sickened by a criminal-justice system he sees as a cruel machine, frequently expresses as much to a testy judge (a charming Linda Lavin), generally to his clients’ disadvantage.
Casi is being enticed to the dark side by Lea (Olivia Cooke), a scrabbling impound-lot worker who is in a pickle after swiping right on the incorrect person outside the courtroom. More than Lea’s shady hookup is after a stockpile of stolen narcotics belonging to a Mexican cartel stashed in one of her vehicles. This tangled web of opposing interests, on the other hand, is as difficult to disentangle as it is to enjoy. IMDB
