The Opium Runner

  The Opium Runner  2/10/09 At night; a derelict industrial area. MOSCOW. 1995. Four tough looking large men stood facing each other. One clutched a bulging battered briefcase he stares at another man holding a suitcase. The other two men watch, each holds a machine pistol at their waists, angled down 45 degrees.
