The Business

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Set in the 1980s,  the era of Thatcher’s children and ‘loadsa money’, The Business is the story of Frankie (Danny Dyer), a young lad from the tenements of South London who finds his dreams in the idyllic South of Spain – a place where criminals live out their fantasies away from British law.

Frankie arrives in Malaga with a tin full of cash for Charlie (Tamer Hassan), an ex-con playboy heading up the local gang of ex-pats living the high life in the small Spanish town of Puerto Banus. Frankie, lured by the glitz, soon becomes Charlie’s second in command.

As Frankie becomes drawn into the world of organised crime, he loves every minute of it.  Fuelled by the money, the women and the drugs, life at the top is sweet. But things can get tough when you attract the wrong sort of attention, especially when that happens to be psycho Sonny’s girl Carly (Georgina Chapman).

Frankie’s about to find out that dreams can quickly turn vicious as loyalties shift, business gets out of control and friendships are tested to breaking point.
