In this Netflix Original film, Jacob King arrives in Los Angeles from Cape Town looking for his missing younger sister.

This is the story of what happens in the next six days.
As he searches for his sister’s killers, wreaking havoc in her name, King’s journey propels him deep into the LA underworld and its intersection with Hollywood high society. His pursuit of revenge will lay bare a network of depravity that stretches from the dive-bars of the gang heartlands to the glitz of the Hills.
