Baseline

Synopsis

Centred around the East London Grime Club scene, the story sees the rise of Danny, the Baseline Club bouncer. Used to breaking up fights, managing drunken kids and working the door, Danny is suddenly plunged deep into an underworld he had tried hard to avoid when he rescues Terry, the club owner and local gang leader, from a hit-man.

Danny is promoted to club manager, but only on the condition that he turns a blind eye to the shady going on both on and off the dance-floor. Danny and his girlfriend Jessica dream of setting up their own club, but Danny is forced to make the ultimate sacrifice when he has to choose between loyalty, morality and his own dream of escape.
 
Adapted from the film The Grind by Rishi Opel.
