When a Russian teenager dies in childbirth, nurse Anna (Watts) determines to find her family and save the baby from foster care. The girl’s diary leads her to enigmatic ‘driver’ Nikolai (Mortensen) and the bloody underworld of the Russian Mafia.
Mortensen shines but a contrived, issue-driven plot destabilises what could have been a great Russian gangster movie.
