Raoul and Plato are best friends. They are both members of an effective criminal organisation and are seemingly untouchable. As a result, the Police assign them round the clock surveillance. When a surveillance officer begins to harass Plato, Plato begins to lose control. His relationship with his girlfriend becomes affected and he starts to have a nervous breakdown, culminating in an epileptic fit while in police custody. Infuriated that Raoul seems to have left him to suffer alone, Plato insults their boss Hourihane and gets pushed out of the close-knit organisation. He vows to take revenge and buys a gun to prove he means business, confessing he wants to kill a cop. Raoul, meanwhile, manages to find relief from his chaotic personal life, when he meets Raine, who brings the order and love he craves back into his life...

(***) of four The film focuses on two criminals: Plato and his closest friend. Suspected of being involved in multiple bank heists, the two are placed under constant police surveillance. The pressure becomes too much for Plato, though, who soon seems close to cracking. As his world disintegrates around him, Plato finds himself descending more and more into madness and he soon believes that violence is his only way out. The movie is a low-budget DV feature shot in London that really manages to reach outside of its restraints. Roffe-Barker directs with style, keeping the viewer wondering what will happen next. Acting is also excellent, which elevates the movie further since it relies heavily on watching the psychological states of the characters. Though it already runs at a lean 84 minutes, some sequences still seem a bit overlong and I wonder if there isn't a fantastic 70 minute movie hidden in here somewhere. Additionally, some of the "split-screen" flashy editing seems somewhat misplaced in an altogether non-flashy movie. Still, minor problems can easily be ignored thanks to the intelligent script and the gripping acting. The movie will very likely not find much of an audience outside of Britain, but it deserves more than that.
