  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

'This is the twenty first century. Women are doing every kind of job. We can do extortion.'

When two London girls overhear a heist happening in their neighbourhood, they devise a seemingly fail-safe plan to blackmail the bank-robbing gang. But when one phone call pitches them deep into a criminal underworld, events spiral out of control and the girls realise they have taken on more than they could ever have bargained for.

Thelma and Louise outwit Goodfellas in this contemporary British comedy caper about the explosive results when High Heels take on Low Lifes.
