Kismet - Synopsis: 

For Billy Evans, the past was a haunted place that left an indelible imprint on the here and now. As he struggles to piece his life together he finds himself drawn back into a world of violence and terror.

 Already emotionally struggling with the passing over of his remaining family, a chance encounter further clouds the border between reality, perception and illusion.

He has spent his life struggling to escape his past but now with memories triggered, he finds himself with no option but to begin an emotive quest for revenge, retribution and finally redemption.
