Diamond Cartel

Synopsis: The charismatic and ruthless Mussa makes a deal to purchase the Star of East Diamond from the Hong-Kong triad crime boss Mr. Lo - but not before being robbed via an inside job by his own people aka former lovers Aliya and Ruslan. Aliya's other former love interest and Mussa henchman gets involved setting up a veritable "who dunnit" love triangle versus Mussa over pursuit of his gem and riches. With the help of a friend determined to ferry the back-stabbing duo of Aliya and Ruslan across the sea abroad, the couple nearly makes it across the borders with the loot. But Mussa's gangsters find them just before they escape and a spectacular, violent finale that sets up a surprise ending.

What we see

is sometimes never is.

A mind is a wondrous thing.

And if you're guessing

you'll probably say

this was California,

and from the distance

it could well be.

But the world I come from,

this world,

is far from California.

This is Southern Siberia.

The former Soviet union.

Rich in oil, but also

the deserts of Asia.

Your freedom in this place,

is the ultimate bargaining chip

for those who own it.

Remaining alive,

that's a tax paid

on a daily basis.

It's a tax

that keeps rising.

Like a shadow, this tax,

it never leaves your sight.

The iron heel

you're born under,

is the heel

by which you die.

Mr. Lou.

As we've agreed,

I'll be forwarding

the diamonds to Boris.

After that we pass

the package on to

amoto San.

I've arranged to ship it

by boat.

In three day it will be

in Hong Kong.

Your guys are the best

lapidaries in the world.

Tony, our guys are

the best lapidaries,

and your guys are

the best buyers

in America.

I hope you've

got everything

organized already.

Brother, you know my guys.

You know you can

count on them.

This is not

their first time.

The only person

worth trusting was

the most dangerous.

And even he was at behest

of the wolves he employed.

The one thing you learn

as quick as taking

your first breath,

is that nothing is ever

what it seems.

The flash, the glitzs,

the stars

only shine for those who chose

not to see beyond them.


I've been

expecting your call.

Did something

unusual happen?

No. Nothing unusual.

No. I'm studying the stars.

You know, one of the most

brilliant of them all.

This one here.

My eastern star.

I don't have it.

And how can you be so sure

i have this star of east?

So, what's the juice?

Because of our relationship,

I'm willing to sell you

the star of east

for half price.

Thirty million us.

Thirty million fucking dollars

from me? What do you want

from me?

You want cash?

Then make the fucking deal.

Good evening.

You again.

Have you seen this girl?

Stop there.

I want you to write down

what I tell you.

Don't worry.

I'll remember it.

Indulge me.

I want you to write it down,

and keep it in your pocket,


Uh, let me explain.

When she worked here

i was planning to come in

and propose,

but she disappeared


Has she been

around since then?




Now, listen.

I'm gonna write

this down for you.

She's never been

back here.

Get it.

She walked out the door,

and we haven't seen her since.

Is that clear?

You've been

coming into my place

for two years.

You're so fixated,

you ask the same question

time after time

even though we keep saying,

"we haven't seen the bitch".

Get out of here!


Thanks a lot.

Ruslan was not

the brightest star in the room.

But he never gave up...

On me, that is.

Neither did arman.

My two sidekicks.

My two lovers.

My one dilemma.

Baby, just come see me.

Just come by.

I've a nice surprise.

You're nicer than usual.

What's the occasion?

Are you the surprise?

I'm talking to my daughter.

How long have

you been answering

to the name "sweetheart"?

-I wouldn't have thought--

-you listen, lady. When I want

your opinion...

I'll ask for it.

So Mike promised to bring

the stone today.


It's my star...

Of the east.

Where'd you plan to meet?

It will be

at the factory,

as usual.

I put the boys there.

There'll be no trouble.

We'll be there

in three hours.

You're not going.

What do you mean?

She is.


It's my... decision.

Look at his face.

See I was right.

He's happy.

Have you lost your mind?

You forget who took you
