After a deal goes wrong, a London street dealer has 48 hours to repay a Serbian crime boss with a fondness for kneecapping his debtors.

We provided full sound post-production on this feature.
In London’s seamy underbelly, drug dealer Frank (Richard Coyle) borrows money from his supplier, which he’ll pay back with the proceeds of his next surefire deal – easy money. But after the deal goes wrong, his life spins out of control as he desperately tries to pull together the cash by any means necessary. With the clock ticking, he tears through London’s nightclubs and strip joints, pursued by Serbian heavies who aren’t inclined to negotiate.
