Synopsis

Disillusioned, middle class accountant Tom (Steven Mackintosh) has lost everything, including the will to live. In the back streets of London he searches for a gun. When he meets D (Ashley Walters), a homeless drug addict, Tom thinks he can buy what he needs without getting his hands dirty. But what D's offering comes with more than just a price tag.

In a derelict warehouse, the transaction is underway. But D stalls, he is loving the rarity of a captive audience for his incessant, high-octane chatter. Elsewhere, local crime Kingpin Hoodwink (Andy Serkis) explodes with anger. He has been robbed in his own home, and he wants the culprit and his property back - now.

Bursting into the warehouse, Hoodwink is quick to lay into D with the beating of a lifetime. Tom intervenes, and for his efforts, he too, receives a savage beating from Hoodwink.

Desperate for his life, D points the finger at three others. Hoodwink leaves to continue his rampage elsewhere, but both D and Tom know it's only a matter of time before Hoodwink discovers the truth about the gun - and returns to find it, and them.

With the impending threat of Hoodwink on their backs, D and Tom play an intense game of cat and mouse, scrambling to cut a deal and make sense of the very lives they may be about to lose .
