Pusher is a crime movie that tells of a drug deal gone wrong and its aftermath. It is a crime movie that achieved a cult following and recognition as the first Danish gangster film. The protagonist Frank (Kim Bodnia) finds himself in hot water when a big time Serbian drug lord, Milo (Zlatko Buric), fronts him a copious amount of heroin, under the agreement that he return and pay back the money he owes immediately after the deal. Unfortunately for Frank, there is a police raid when the deal is taking place and he is forced to abandon the heroin. Although he tried to explain what happened to Milo, his story fell on deaf ears. The film gets interesting as Frank, along with the help of his lover, Vic (Laura Drasbaek), and several friends attempt to fix the series of problems that has arisen out of the drug deal gone sour.
