Safecracker Pictures 2012

Synopsis

A hilarious mad-cap comedy about Tash McDermott (Mark Woodward), Head of Lancashire Constabulary's Football Intelligence Unit, as he tries to track down a football hooligan ring leader, and put a stop to any "shenanigans" on the terraces. Tash is on the trail of the elusive ‘Nightmare’, a notorious football firm hooligan.

Inspired by TV programmes like ‘Police, Camera, Action’, Tash is giving a journalist (Ian Wiggins) unrestricted access to cover his operation. But Tash is stuck in the glory days of the past, when football was a man’s game, women knew their place, a ruck was pretty much guaranteed, and he was top of the league for arrests and banning orders.

Tash senses that being the subject of a documentary will restore his status, put him right back where he deserves to be, and maybe even make him a star. So he takes his eye off the ball and starts playing up to the camera. But that, and the fact the he can’t hold his beer, ends up landing him in serious trouble. http://www.safecrackerpictures.com
