After premiering at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, it enjoyed a limited theatrical release the next month, followed by the DVD and Blu-ray release a few weeks later—almost, but not quite, Direct-to-Video.
Tropes in the film:
- Blind Without 'Em - We see Kyle's blurry view as he scrambles for his glasses.
- Borrowed Biometric Bypass - One of the robbers' threats if Kyle doesn't cooperate.
- Break the Fake - Kyle reveals that Sarah's "diamond" necklace is a fake, and that he sold the original.
- Dropped Glasses - We see Kyle's blurry view as he scrambles for his glasses.
- Flashback - Several, revealing various events leading up to the robbery.
- Impersonating an Officer - The robbers originally gain entry by masquerading as police.
- Mexican Standoff - Several, including one where Sarah holds one robber hostage with a drug-filled syringe, gaining her daughter's escape in exchange for Kyle opening the safe.
- Organ Theft - One of the robbers' threats if Kyle doesn't cooperate.
- Switching P.O.V. - first Jonah, then Sarah
- Take Me Instead - Kyle offers his own kidney (instead of his daughter's).
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness - Kyle refuses to cooperate, because he is afraid the robbers will kill them once he does.
