Plot Summary: The first film in Refn's gritty underworld trilogy, "Pusher" centers around Frank (Kim Bodnia), who revels in his job as a Copenhagen drug dealer. After a large drug deal goes wrong and he is arrested by the local police, Frank becomes a hunted man drawn into a world of violence and retribution. The second film in the trilogy, "Pusher II: With Blood on My Hands," follows Frank's long estranged business partner Tonny (Mads Mikkelsen), who returns to his father's stolen car business after a long stretch in prison. To his surprise, he finds he has become a father to a baby boy and tries to build a relationship with his cold-hearted father. After a deal with an associate goes wrong, Tonny has to decide which family ties are binding and which must be severed forever. In the final installation of the trilogy, "Pusher III: I'm the Angel of Death," drug king-pin Milo (Zlatko Buric), five days into rehab from his long term heroin habit, struggles to balance a dinner for 50 people for his only daughter's 25th birthday with a complicated drug deal with the hostile new generation of criminals from Albania. A main character in the previous two films, Milo has aged, seemingly having lost his taste for the violent life he once led. Milo's attempts to keep a tenuous grasp on the world around him become more and more strained, leading him to a choice of relative morality for which the cost proves greatest to himself and his new-found path toward reformation.
