London, 1974. As Britain prepares for electrical blackouts to sweep across the country, trainee nurse Val arrives for her first day at the crumbling East London Royal Infirmary. With most of the patients and staff evacuated to another hospital, Val is forced to work the night shift, finding herself in a dark, near empty building. Within these walls lies a deadly secret, forcing Val to face both her own traumatic past and deepest fears.
To stay out of the slammer, down-on-his-luck bounty hunter Vince Holloway reluctantly agrees to do the bidding of two crooked IRS agents. Tasked with recouping $20 million of laundered drug money, Holloway heads south of the border to the Blue Iguana, a bar crawling with thugs, killers, smugglers, evil women, and crazy action.
