About the film:
In the urban action thriller Waist Deep, director Vondie Curtis Hall (Redemption) takes audiences on a ride through contemporary Los Angeles - where a sexy 21st-century Bonnie and Clyde hit the streets.

"I'll always come back for you," single father O2 (Tyrese Gibson of Four Brothers) tells his young son Junior (screen newcomer H. Hunter Hall). This parental promise is put to the test when O2 is suddenly plunged into a do-or-die situation; trying to go straight for Junior's sake, this recently paroled ex-con is forced to go back outside the law after his son is kidnapped in a carjacking. The resulting chase and shootout have left Junior in the hands of Meat (hip-hop superstar The Game, in his feature debut), the vicious leader of the Outlaw Syndicate. O2's shady cousin Lucky (Larenz Tate of Crash) tries to mediate, but is caught between criminal and family loyalties.

The only person who can or will help O2 get his son back is wily street-smart hustler Coco (Meagan Good of You Got Served), whose path fatefully crossed O2's just moments before the kidnapping. When Lucky gets word to O2 that Meat expects $100,000 for Junior's freedom, O2 and Coco seize the opportunity to pit rival elements of the South Los Angeles underworld against each other.

"It's either all or nothing," realizes O2. With the clock ticking down, the heat between O2 and Coco rises as they become a lawbreaking couple, on an action-packed tear through a range of Los Angeles neighborhoods. Can they outwit the underworld and save Junior and themselves?
Rated R for strong violence and pervasive language.
