Black Out

On the day before his wedding, retired criminal Jos Vreeswijk wakes up next to a dead man…

… and as if that’s not enough, crime lord Vlad is accusing him of ripping off 20 kilos of cocaine. Jos has to get the stash back in 24 hours, otherwise his bride Caroline will pay the price. He has no choice therefore but to creep back into his old world of thieves and dealers to get the coke back, fill the gap in his memory and get himself to the church on time.
