A Russian gang operating in Leeds with no respect for the laws of England, traffic Eastern Europeans in containers then enslave them, the women to sex, the men to illegal fights. They cross local businessman Gabe Taylor and a war escalates, but when his daughter is taken to be sold into the sex trade, Gabe fights back. Written by

Having being involved in liaising with the location manager for the cage fighting scenes, I was invited to watch this movie when they did the cast & crew screening in Leeds before it went to Cannes. Not being a big fan of 'action' movies I was curious but not over enthusiastic initially. From start to finish, the humanity and the very serious multi-faceted issues dealt with in Freight kept me immersed in the story line. The fight scenes and other action shots were very well executed and there was an element of humour underlying which made the whole experience very enjoyable. Well done to Stuart St Paul and his cast & crew.
