Storyline

When Dezzie befriends new boy Yasin at his school, little does he know his life will take an unexpected turn that will ultimately shape his future. Having witnessed the perpetual racist taunts and bullying to the quiet Chinese newcomer, Dezzie, no stranger to beatings himself, stands up to Yasin's persecutors and wins the respect, not only of his tormentors, but more importantly of Yasin, and his family. Dezzie takes Yasin under his protective wing and they become firm and loyal friends until Yasin's Godfather Kai arrives to take the teenage Yasin back to Hong Kong. Ten years pass without a word until Yasin, aged twenty-five, comes back to Manchester to find his friend Dezzie and offer him a lucrative position at his side within the family firm. But this is a firm with a difference: Dezzie, the only white man to do so this side of the Atlantic is to be a Triad member and run the family business in Manchester and Liverpool And here our story begins. Just as Yasin was once thrust into ... Written by alan field

Great story, great actors
9 March 2014 | by tmontana111See all my reviews

I enjoyed watching this film, wasn't too sure at first, but i like Leo Gregory and Jody Latham so thought i would give a British Indie a watch. Turned out a very enjoyable watch, great story, the action would have been more explosive if it had more budget. But then maybe that would have distracted you away from the story, a love story set in the uk Chinese world was a refreshing change from the normal setting of underground Britain, the usual London setting, gangland slayings, at least this film punched well above its weight. The acting was top class from a host of well-known faces and again not many British films have Chinese actors as lead cast, so another well-done to the film.
