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

Not only did Mark Hyer (Tony Richards) not possess a driving license at the time of production, but he had never even had a lesson. Thus all the driving scenes involving the gangsters' blue Ford Orion are done by the car's owner, Herjeet Jagdeo. See more »
In the wide frontal tracking shot of the thugs chasing Will and Ricky, all of them are in motion. However, when Will turns to shoot them they have both instantly stopped running. See more »
Much better than I could have imagined for low budget-dom!
Nice one you people who made this... I am prone to buying lots of budget junk too see just how good some of the bad stuff is and to see whether 'I could make that'. I have seen a lot of bad stuff but for a Brit this ain't bad at all. I've lived here 8 years now and seen how forgetful some of these UK so-called 'big-budget' movies are like with so-called 'brit celebs' in them. My advice is to stick on these up-and-coming actors and directors as they seem to know how to get the best out of a budget. No wastage here, and I like some of the shakiness - gives a kinda independent edge to it. I know I ain't gonna get the cash to make my own London-crime drama, but if I did I probably wouldn't do as good as this shot. Perhaps with a bigger budget it could have been better and they coulda got more songs in where its a bit quiet on the action front. Sweet.
