Traffik “A romantic road trip turns into a
  nightmare when a young couple fall
  foul of a biker gang working for a violent
  criminal who will kill anyone who
  crosses him or interferes with his
  lucrative but appalling illegal business
  in the tense thriller Traffik
...”

DEDICATED SACRAMENTO POST JOURNALIST BREA (Paula Paton: About Last Night; Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) is in love with her mechanic boyfriend John (Omar Epps: House; Shooter) but is not sure if she is ready for a lifetime commitment.

Brea is ambitious and wants to faolow her chosen career, which she loves; and when her boss Carl Waynewright (William Fichtner: Empire; Drive Angry) gives the assignment exposing high-level corruption that she had worked so hard on to another reporter she is upset and angry.

Traffik is a tense
and edgy thriller in
which a chance
encounter leads to
a terrifying and violent
tragedy...”
On her birthday, Brea is given a beautiful muscle car John has rebuilt for her and, unknown to her, he plans to whisk her away to a mountain hideaway organised by his friend, Sport Agent Darren "Dee" Cole (Laz Alonso), to propose marriage.

At a gas station on the way to their romantic break, John has an altercation with a tough-looking biker and Brea meets a disturbed young woman, Cara (Dawn Olivieri), who gives her a strange message.

Riding menacingly, the biker chases Brea and John along winding country roads in a dangerous high-speed chase until John is forced to take action, unaware that all these incidents will bring a living nightmare to their door.

Brash and overconfident, Darren surprises Brea and John by bringing his girlfriend Malia (Roselyn Sanchez) to join them, thus spoiling John's surprise for Brea — a decision Dee will soon regret.

Someone at the door heralds a horrifying and shocking visit that will see the friends fighting for their lives as they are terrorised by the murderous gang led by the cold-blooded Red (the credible Luke Goss), demanding the return of incriminating evidence Brea and John have unwittingly acquired. And they don't care what they have to do to get it back.

Escape seems impossible and not everyone will come out alive as Red is desperate to prevent his involvement in the dreadful and lucrative human trafficking from being discovered.

Traffik is a tense and edgy thriller in which a chance encounter leads to a terrifying and violent tragedy. Clichéd in places and a little lightweight, the characters are likeable enough and there is sufficient drama and a few plot twists to keep you watching.
