Kiefer Sutherland, the star of the gripping television series "24", brings intensity and gravitas to this surprisingly fresh and sexy update of the classic noir thriller...
The product of an Ivy League education, Arthur Banks (Sutherland) has fallen to the dark side. Stalked by the FBI and staked out in the desert, Banks is a ruthless, cold-blooded assassin for hire. His modus operandi is to find a desperate woman, enlist her as his accomplice, promise her a substantial pay-off...and then dispose of her right after the hit. No second thoughts, no guilt felt.
But Banks hasn't counted on meeting Bennie (Melora Waters), the one woman who may be able to change his ways...if only she can stay alive long enough to get under his skin.
With a lethal dose of double crossings, fatal lies, deadly betrayals and a truly unexpected ending, DESERT SAINTS is a neo noir thriller of the most original kind.
