About the movie

Natural Vice tells the exhilarating tale of strength and survival in the face of great adversaries and tremendous loss.
Innovatively shot in only 12 days, Natural Vice tells the tale of Adam LeBlanc, the CEO of a psychedelic drug manufacturing company, who fatally cuts ties with his double-dealing distributor, triggering the wrath of the Mountain Master of a dangerous Hong Kong triad.
Adam knows how to kill with his hands and with a gun as he leads a crew of hardened mercenaries. The Mountain Master, however, is an enemy like nothing Adam has ever faced; a cruel emperor of shadows who specializes in breaking the human spirit.
As the Mountain Master and his minions hunt for Adam, a mysterious woman, Hailey, enters Adam’s life. She inadvertently leads the enemy straight to Adam, and to herself. With only his instincts and love of combat, Adam must not let the Mountain Master break his spirit while he attempts to rescue the girl and save the day.
