Description

Just as the Atlantic Club in London’s SoHo district is reaching its pinnacle, its headliner is kidnapped and the owner is found sawed in two behind the club. Nervous that the party behind this abduction and murder has it in for the rest of the staff, Mickey, the club’s number two man, orders the Atlantic on lock down. When Baby, the deceased owner’s flippant son, challenges Mickey’s power, Mickey banishes him from the tightly-sealed club. Things change, however, when Baby reemerges with some shocking information behind his father’s murder and Silver Johnny’s abduction.
