Production Background & Fun Facts: PEACE, LOVE, UNITY, RETRIBUTION is an action-packed tale of a mercenary squad set in the fictional 'Marvell City', of which its inhabitants affectionately call 'Hell City', and the Hammerheads-led by David Hammer are gunned down in cold blood by Chrome and his vicious biker gang. 7 years later, a still traumatized Hammer accepts a mysterious strangers' offer to rescue his daughter from a sex slave Kingpin/Mob Boss-Dominic Mercer. The title is an ironic spin on the acronym known as the 'Raver's Manifesto', or P.L.U.R., which means 'Peace, Love, Unity, Respect', which is fitting because the film is set to the beat of modern EDM, particularly the subgenre known as 'trance', and contains music from several established recording artists. This is the 2nd film in a 3-part series, the first being PEACE, LOVE, UNITY, REVENGE, and the 3rd (prequel) being PEACE, LOVE, UNITY, REVOLUTION. These 3 films work independently of each other, while also will be edited together to form a feature-length film currently in Production, tentatively titled PEACE, LOVE, UNITY, REVENGE.
