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

Thoroughly recommend
25 September 2019 | by ajelvidgeSee all my reviews

Thought provoking and entertaining. The main character is very believable as are the circumstances he finds himself in. Dark, tense but with laugh out loud moments. Would definitely recommend.
