A Dramedy starring Jean Claude Van Damme as Jean-Claude Van Damme. A tired, washed-out failure, struggling for work and (subsequently) money, the film starts with JCVD returning to his hometown of Brussels, Belgium. When one day going to the local Post Office to receive a wire transfer, he suddenly finds himself smack-bang in the middle of a robbery, held at gun point and marched into the back with the other customers and staff, where he's forced to juggle their expectations of "the Muscles from Brussels" with the fact he's a 48 year old man who really doesn't want to get shot.

His day does not improve from there.

Quite probably the finest film Jean Claude Van Damme has starred in for years (possibly ever), and immediately recognized as such when it was released. It gets a lot of mileage out of both the public's perception of him, and the current state of his career.
