Here is the official synopsis for The Scrapper:

Queens, New York City. A criminal playing field of modern immigrant syndicates: human trafficking, money-laundering, and unflinching brutality. Uncomfortable in his Punjabi-Mexican skin, ex-con turned ‘scrapper’ Jake carries the weight of both his family legacy and a violent past. Caring for a mentally-challenged brother and an unborn child on the way, he is focused on turning his life around. When one last job presents a way out for good, he must decide between loyalty to blood ties or to his newfound family. His past soon catches up with him and he’s thrown into the middle of a conflict between Punjabi and Mexican factions led by violent, ruthless criminals. As events explode into brutal violence, with everyone he loves at stake, he may need to go to his own darkest places to finally escape.

“I’ve always been fascinated by the darker side of human nature and drawn to the films of Scorsese, De Palma, Tarantino, and Melville. The underdog, outcast, and anti-hero are who captivates me. This is what inspired me to write The Scrapper, a crime thriller with an ethnic twist, set in a world of Punjabi-Mexican criminals. Inspired by my personal experience as an illegal Punjabi immigrant youth in Queens, New York,” said writer and director Bari Kang. “The film has a dark gritty tone elevated by a fully ethnic cast and authentic locations. Amidst the outbursts of brutal violence are beautiful contemplative moments of vulnerability and love. On the surface, The Scrapper is a crime thriller genre film but at its core, it’s about family, loyalty, and change.”

The Scrapper is now available digitally today.
