Revenge started a gangland tragedy. Now only sacrifice can finish it.
IDLEWILD: when two men play God, the Devil decides who wins.
Dublin 2018: Two men meet on a hilltop cemetery overlooking Dublin.
One says, “So this is what 30 million looks like.” That’s what his companion
is worth, an international drug dealer hiding out in Spain from where he
runs his business and orders the murderously brutal shootings which
help him keep control of it all. Fourteen to date, including members of
his own family and his “friend’s” family. They grew up together, began
dealing together, and loved each other unconditionally. Until. Until the
third member of their youthful “harmless” crime gang went down in a
bank raid. He lies buried at their feet. In the 15 years since, the other
man has gone in a different direction: out of drugs, into the far “cleaner”
trade of bank robbery. He too is worth many millions, striding out, as his
erstwhile friend goads him, over the limbs of security men smashed
with lump hammers, and the imprisoned families left with nervous
breakdowns, some of them terminal. And along the way, they have
systematically been wiping out each other’s associates and families;
now they have met to end it, one way or the other.
