Storyline

Film school tutor, Barry Lick, has been suspended on full pay accused of 'gross professional misconduct'. But he's got a spring in his step because it means he's just been handed the chance to try and make a sensationalist crime documentary which might just save his career. Even better he can do it all on the cheap; he's still being payed and there's ex-students out there who are willing to work for nothing more than empty promises. Barry's quest is going nowhere - that is until security consultant, Tommy Morghen, appears on the scene. And it's not long before Barry's plunged into a world of sub-prime mortgages, blackmail, corruption, knife crime, extreme German S&M pornography, castration, corpse disposal, gang-rape and, ultimately, murder. But what's Tommy's interest in all this? Is it that he just wants fame and notoriety, or does he have another agenda? Barry puts questions like these to the back of his mind. All he knows is that, in the age of reality TV, sensationalism sells - ... Written by Pleased Sheep Productions (press release)

Strong stuff indeed!!! Innovative, creepy yet also darkly funny - this is a must see movie that defies all attempts to categorise it as just a gangster film.

It is so much more, and shows a depth of quality and originality that suggests a bright future for this group of oh so talented film makers.

This excellent low budget British film underlines the depth of talent that exists in the UK and deserves to be seen by the widest possible audience.

Michael Booth is clearly a man to watch and I look forward to watching his next movie with enthusiasm.
