Actress Veronica Ngo is exiting 2018 on a pretty high note. With a documentary about her life in the midst covering the Star Wars: The Last Jedi co-star’s spanning career in film on both sides of the lens and in several areas, her latest push, Furie (a.k.a. Hai Phoung), is guaranteed to leave a mark in the new year.

Ngo plays a former gangster trying to live an idyllic life and is suddenly forced back into the underworld from which she left in order to rescue her daughter.
Kefi Abrikh is the man behind the action and his credentials are wholly worth looking up on IMDb, and even YouTube where he’s partaken with folks on several projects showcasing independent action.
