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

The red Ford Escort used for the crash scene towards the end of the film was bought, used and then scrapped, all within three days. The actual crash was done at around 25mph by a friend of the director's who had previously been involved in three car crashes, and formerly owned the Escort. 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 »
Surprisingly enjoyable taste at east end guns, gangs & grime!
I saw this film after I heard about it from a friend who is into all things gangsta... I look at the cover art and thought <cheesy> but now I realise how wrong I am. With good looking lead guys, serious dialogue with a hint of humor - I was surprise by these efforts of low budget movie-making. Action bits were pretty good but I only wish there was more butt-kicking by the gals! A good movie, I would like to know/see more about these Troubled Children Films makers...
