Running away from a troubled marriage, Kate Frazier hopes to find anonymity with a new home and a new job in Chicago. Despite friendly flirtation from co-workers and others, the shy and reserved Kate keeps her distance, avoiding questions about her sudden arrival and her recent past.

Haunted by the troubling choices he has made, Frank finds a kindred spirit in the younger Kate, and for a moment the two seem destined to redeem and remake each other.

But neither lonely soul can escape the lives they have left behind. As events unfold and the painful truth slowly emerges, Frank is forced to face the man he really is, while Kate struggles to be the stronger woman she needs to be.

During WWII a youth deserts his country’s army after a combat experience, but not before wounding his commanding officer with a knife in order to escape. The young man, now very emotionally distraught, dresses in women’s clothes and eventually joins a passing gypsy caravan, who think him a young girl… as well as a kind of seer, or ‘rawney’. In time, however, he regains some composure and becomes attracted to one of the gypsy girls, which only leads to problems within the gypsy band, especially when the wounded commanding officer finds him.

Universal Soldier: Regeneration
Starring: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren & Andrei Arlovski

In 1992 two of the world’s most popular action superstars were brought together to create one of the most unforgettable martial arts/action/sci-fi cult classics of its time. The film was Universal Soldier, the stars were Jean-Claude Van Damme (JCVD, Legionnaire, Bloodsport, Kickboxer) and Dolph Lundgren (Rocky IV, The Punisher, Direct Contact). In 2010 director John Hyams (NYPD Blue, One Dog Day, The Smashing Machine) has brought these legends of action cinema together again for the ultimate future killing machine showdown, Universal Soldier: Regeneration.

The world is in danger and the government is being threatened. Crazed terrorists are on the loose and will stop at nothing to cause death and destruction. Using stolen technology they have created their own version of the Universal Soldier: a lethal robot warrior whose only programme is to kill and kill again. The government’s only hope is to regenerate Luc Deveraux, a decommissioned Unisol and expert assassin. His mission: to infiltrate a highly armed fortress, slaughter the enemy and save the world from nuclear disaster. But somebody – or something – is waiting for him, something intent on crushing the future into oblivion. Let the combat commence.
