Storyline

Small Town Hero is a dark and comical drama set in an idyllic rural town in England. It follows the story of 'Pep' who becomes a local hero after taking the law into his own hands to prevent a crime. Relishing in his new found glory, Pep joins the neighbourhood watch to further his agenda and fulfil his dream of creating a utopia; a town free of crime and antisocial behaviour. Before long, the extremity of Pep's measures and his aggressive and violent approach to achieving his goals becomes unacceptable to the local community and he is shunned. Desperate to regain his hero status, the rumour of a paedophile gives Pep one last chance to save the day; a manhunt ensues. Written by Anonymous

Don't Believe the Haters. Excellent Film
26 November 2019 | by brturlishSee all my reviews

This is a good, gritty small budget British film. Excellent acting from all concerned. Lead actor Simon Cassidy is a name to watch. Highly recommended.
