Lost Sharks

It’s 1973 and things are looking good for the Shark’s Den, a run down jazz-burlesque club located on Central Avenue in Los Angeles. We learn that Torres, the club’s owner, has secured a loan from a bank and has big dreams of renovating the club and bringing the famous Avenue back to life. Her smoke break is interrupted by a stranger named Cameron who’s arrived from London bearing a bar napkin scribbled with a message: “If you want your son back come to 423 South Central… and quick”. The mystery of the son compounds with violent consequences as Torres is forced to defend her buried past and the future of the club.
