Synopsis

Jules has proposed to Rebecca, but as he is set to go on an extended work trip, he hears that Rebecca’s ex-boyfriend, Rudolph, has got wind of his plans and has managed to bounce back into her life. Jules becomes concerned as he had lost out to his rival before because of a similar prolonged period of absence, so decides to search for a job closer to home. However, as Rudolph has already dug his hills in deep, and will not be swayed otherwise, he manages to set up Jules with a random girl, so he can photograph the evidence and send it to Rebecca. Jules ends up getting dumped again, but this time for keeps. Desperate to prove his innocence and win back the love of his life, he discovers that Rudolph has a tighter hold on her than he had imagined. Jules is driven to the limits, opting for the only possible solution: to have Rudolph wiped out. Nevertheless, he realises that killing another human-being is easier said than done, as he must deal with his own conscience. Events eventually amount to a fuelled climatic encounter between the two adversaries at a cliff edge located on the south coast of England.
