Additional Info

Dust is an edge-of-your-seat thriller. Martin is an executive with money and a paunch. Zeke, a gifted young man torn down by drugs, is an ex-con with street smarts and a minimum wage position. Early one morning, in the fitness center of the Essex House, a battle-of-wills begins over the most trivial of requests. As described in The New York Times review: "Verbal sparring turns angry, posturing leads to entrenched positions, and out of nothing - out of dust - a grudge match is born." Once Martin's daughter Jenny becomes entangled, the stakes are raised even higher - escalating a war for respect into one for revenge and ultimately survival. Who will be standing when the dust settles?
