It's about bootlegging guns on the street & friends turning against each other. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member The gun salesman in Strapped is from NOES 3: Dream Warriors, it's almost bizarre to see him selling guns to kids and not telling them to use their dream powers as some free side advice. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member snitches get stitches!!!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
