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. Recently paroled ex-con O2 (Tyrese Gibson) is determined to get his life back in order for Junior but his plans go awry when his son is kidnapped in a carjacking.
Junior is now being held by Meat (hip-hop superstar The Game, in his feature debut), the vicious leader of the Outlaw Syndicate and despite O2's shady cousin Lucky (Larenz Tate) trying to mediate, O2 is forced to go outside the law 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, YOU GOT SERVED), whose path fatefully crossed O2's just moments before the kidnapping. Facing a $100 000 ransom for Junior's return, O2 and Coco find themselves in a race against time to come up with the money. O2 and Coco seize the opportunity to pit rival elements of the South Los Angeles underworld against each other.
With the clock ticking down, this 21 st century Bonnie and Clyde hit the streets in an action packed urban thriller tearing through a range of Los Angeles neighborhoods as they try to outwit the underworld and save Junior themselves
