Bastion

Bastion is a sequel to "Valentine". The pub is the place where different people from the multicultural society meet. One looking for love, another looking for his victim in an honor killing, while others are dealing drugs. It all happens in the pub Bastion where you can also play darts or just have a beer. Tonight, however, you'd better not be there, wrong time, wrong place...
