Dead Man Running

Synopsis

When the recession is hitting the criminal world as hard as it is hitting Wall Street, New York gangster and loan shark, Mr Thigo (Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson) arrives in London to make an example out of one of his late payers.

Already struggling financially, reformed ex- con Nick (Tamer Hassan) is given exactly 24 hours to come up with the £100,000 left on his bill or he is a DEAD MAN RUNNING. As a guarantee, Thigo’s men hold Nick’s wheelchair-bound mum (Brenda Blethyn) hostage, leaving him no choice but to comply. Enlisting the help of his best mate, Bing (Danny Dyer), the boys embark on a frantic race against the clock. Their mission takes them from the dog tracks of East London to the underground drug scene of Manchester as they try every trick and scam in the book to get the cash before it’s too late.
