For a loved one

Emma visits her brother, Sam, whom she hasn't seen in over a year. She hopes to get him out of the shady environments in which he hangs out. While they are arguing, there is a violent knock on the front door. Emma just has time to hide, only to see the mobsters that Sam has pissed off enter with a bang. They want to get back something he stole from them. Emma gets scared and stays safe while they torture him. On the noise of Sam's cries of suffering, Emma must soon face the facts: she cannot stay hidden and let her brother die, even if it means getting her hands dirty herself...
