In present day East London, Will Kane is a med. school drop out, and existential loner whose hate of the system has led him to drifting into low and high line crime capers, with best bud Ricky Hammond in tow. With action in short supply, they agree to take a mule job from reliable French connection Pierre, who is doing small drug jobs for two East-End gangsters, who also happen to be local rivals: Tudor Barro and Willie C.. When Pierre dies, due to overeating for a mule job he was about to perform (67 packets of condoms filled with heroin), Will and Ricky recover the drugs through grizzly means which involve a knife, and some crude medical know-how. With London big-wig Willie C., also an old friend of Will's, suspecting that they killed Pierre in order to pilfer the drugs, all hell breaks loose. With tragedy, soul searching, old loves reacquainted, and a hail of bullets, this is an asphalt jungle cataclysm that few will forget!Written by

While guerrilla shooting Ricky's flashback scene featuring his brother, on Ilford High Street, a suspicious councillor thought the cast were real card sharps and so phoned the police. The police let the crew off however and kindly allowed them to finish the scene when Grewal told them he was shooting his "student thesis film". See more »
The cameraman's shadow can be seen moving with the action when Willie C's gunsel grabs Will Kane off of the streets, and throws him into the blue Ford Orion. See more »
This film has a lovely low-budget gritty charm that is quite irresistible - u gotta like the film as a whole. The leads are very engaging for unknowns actors. The only qualm I have is for the lack of juicy meat the female roles have! Otherwise an interesting film. I am intrigued by the makers of the film - Troubled Children Films - someone give them a contract, they seem weird, cool and cutting edge from their website. The people whose reviews precede this one are being too harsh methinks...they should wise up and recognise talent even in its rawest form...! Those are my two cents! RR
