CWA GOLD DAGGER WINNER
THREE MEN – TWO CONVICTIONS – ONE LAST SCORE – NO MORE CHANCES
Carved from a lifetime of experience that runs the gamut from incarceration to liberation. Dog Eat Dog is the story of three men fresh out of prison who now have the task of adapting to civilian life. The California three strikes law looms over them, but what the hell, they’re going to do it their way.
Troy, an aloof mastermind, seeks an uncomplicated, clean life but cannot get away from his hatred for the system. Diesel is on the mob’s payroll and interest in his suburban home and nagging wife is waning. The loose cannon of the trio, Mad Dog, is possessed by true demons within, that lead him from one explosive situation to the next.
One last big hit, one more jackpot, and they’ll be set for life. Troy constructs the perfect crime and they pull it off, but it is still not enough to prevent a denouement that has a grim and violent inevitability about it.
