A noirish crime thriller, ‘Galveston’ centers on New Orleans hitman Roy Cady, diagnosed with lung cancer at 40. Before the cancer can do him in, however, he must attend to more pressing concerns in the form of his mobster boss, who has decided to remove him from the business - and the world - in a setup. Turning the tables, Roy goes on the run, having rescued teenage hooker Raquel “Rocky” Arceneaux. He’s persuaded to pick up her younger sister Tiffany, and with his new wards in tow, heads to his titular hometown to scheme revenge and redemption.

Roy is a heavy-drinking criminal enforcer and mob hit-man whose boss set him up in a double-cross scheme. After killing his would-be assassins before they kill him, Roy discovers Rocky, a beguiling young woman being held captive, and reluctantly takes her with him on his escape. Determined to find safety and sanctuary in Galveston, Roy must find a way to stop his boss from pursuing them while trying to outrun the demons from both his and Rocky’s pasts.

Based on (the novel) by Nic Pizzolatto.
