But of course it does. Ricky ends up violently eliminating the competition and Cliff is suddenly in a lot deeper than he intended to be.
Blood for Dust is directed by Rod Blackhurst who sounds psyched about it. While Blood For Dust is a story born from the realities of our times its also a pulse pounding thriller about family pain greed mobile defibrillator units the American dream and its contradictions there he said.
