Synopsis:Ahmed, Arabian, mid-twenties, wakes up in a shabby motel room with a deep hole in his head. He has no recollection of how he got there or how got the injury. On the floor lies a dead woman, shot. Next to her a cannister with the remains of a yellowish liquid.
Realizing he's the main suspect of murder, Ahmed hits the street to find out what really happened. He definitely didn't kill this woman, although, looking at his tattoos and general appearance, one would surely take him for a criminal.
Meanwhile, Nadja, hard working jazz singer and private eye, gets a new assignment. Somebody just robbed legendary mafia boss Boris off a million dollars and whoever finds the robbers get to keep the money. Boris got a reputation of being ruthless and cruel, and some say he's got a supernatural ability to predict future. Overall Boris is a guy you don't rob.
Out in the streets, Ahmed is immediately ambushed by Alex, a thug like himself, who claims Ahmed has double crossed him. Where is the money? Ahmed's still can't recall a thing and Alex gives him 24 hours to come up with the money.
Still confused Ahmed gets a call on his cell. It's Andrej, supposedly his best friend, telling him he's got the weapons Ahmed asked for. Ahmed doesn't remember Andrej and most certainly has no idea what he needs a bag worth of automatic weapons for. He shows Andrej the empty cannister he found in the hotel room. Now it's mysteriously filled with that same yellowish liquid. Andrej, being sort of a lab geek, a nerdy expert on the technical aspects of crime, recognizes it as being Angel Tears, the hottest in new drugs with some undocumented mental effects. Ahmed also learns that he's known all over town as "Atrocious A", bad ass hit man with a track record worse than the grim reaper.
Meanwhile, Nadja has been able to track down the robbers. Her world class sense of smell makes her an unsurpassed bloodhound, literally, but as she sneaks into the the robbers nest she immediately recognizes the scent of someone she thought she forever left in her past. Somebody close to her, and he's in imminent danger!
Ahmed meets with Alex, but now he seems to have forgotten all about the money. Obviously Alex and Ahmed have committed a successful robbery and as Alex shows him the money, Ahmed gets a great idea. Since Alex doesn't seem to be all that trustworthy, why not just take the money and ditch him? Said and done. Of course, right after he leaves, Ahmed has a flashback of what has really happened: The reason Alex ambushed him before was that Ahmed ripped him off now, only somehow those events got mixed up in time.
Regretful, Ahmed heads home to Alex to sort things out, only to get into a shootout with Nadja. He suddenly recalls who she is: They were once a couple but she left him because of his violent, dangerous nature. And now their paths have crossed again. She won't turn him over to Boris but neither does she want anything to do with him and leaves him there. Ahmed on the other hand feels he's a changed man, whatever happened to him has changed him. He's not Atrocious A anymore. He needs to win her back!
Ahmed figures the best way to begin his new life is to return the money he took from Alex but the rendez-vous turns out to be a setup. Boris the mafia boss is there. Alex sold him out. Boris is disappointed to say the least. Ahmed was his right hand, and now he has robbed him! And Ahmed stole the “Angel Tears”, the substance responsible for the boss's legendary ability to predict future.
It looks like Ahmed's going to die right there but Najda turns up again, saving him at the last moment. Apparently she still got feelings for him. At first she's skeptical when he tells her time is chopped up but finally believes him. In any case they've gotta get away from Boris, maybe start a new life somewhere else.
They set off to the other side of town, to a motel she knows, but as they arrive Ahmed recognizes the room were we started all this. She's the woman who lay dead on that floor! At the same time Boris' henchmen arrive, they've been tracked down.
Ahmed suddenly recalls that Boris once told him that the “Angel Tears” can give you the ability to change time. Concentrating, Ahmed manages to push time forward a few minutes, giving him a heads up on the enemies strategy. Ahmed subsequently shows off his effectiveness as a soldier when killing off everyone of them. Has he really managed to change the flow of events, saving Najda's life? Not quite: In the end he accidentally kills her himself as a result of his violent shoot-first-ask-later nature.
Devastated, Ahmed remembers the Angel Tears in his pocket and drinks them to maybe be able to reverse time and save her. Ahmed blacks out on the bathroom floor. As he wakes up he has no recollection of these events, he's back in the motel where we started. Who's that woman on the floor?
