Storyline

After an eight-year stint for a failed bank heist, Frank Ross (Tom Bell, Prime Suspect) returns to his old gangland haunts to find the snitch who sent him to jail. The smooth, streetwise ex-con quickly adjusts to the new attitudes of the disco-tinged '70s but discovers that although neighborhoods change, old grudges never go out of style. Played with steely intelligence by Bell, Ross doesn't hesitate to pull a gun or swing a fist if it suits him. Can he find the rat without falling into the clutches of a ruthless crime boss (Brian Cox, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) or the detective (Norman Rodway, The Bretts) determined to destroy him? Filmed on location in South London, Out depicts a world where gritty pubs, dingy flats, and run-down office buildings teem with high-living mobsters, cash-starved hustlers, and corrupt cops. BAFTA nominee Bell delivers a psychologically complex portrait of a gangster whose inner demons torment him as ferociously as his flesh-and-blood enemies.

This whole mini series is absolute class. British gangster Frank ross is just out of the nick and cant believe the changes on his manor in the east end of london. All his criminal mates have either called it quits or went on their own endeavors over his period of incarceration. But one question lingers,who informed on him and his mates leading to them being caught red handed during the teams last robbery!? This is absolutely required viewing if u enjoy films like get carter and long good friday! Will take a couple viewing to piece every little sub plot together but totally worth it!
