Louis DEMPSEY takes on the role of a small-time crook returning home to south London in the hope of starting a new life with his wife and child after six years behind bars.

He hopes the ill-gotten gains from previous scams will provide him with enough cash. But his partner in crime insists on one final job, and implicates them both in a shady deal involving a local hardman, played by Adrian Dunbar and conniving Scottish arms dealer, Gerard Butler.

Double-dealing and secret alliances turn the friends against one another, while two tenacious cops work tirelessly to put Dempsey back in prison.

It's all very predictable in a by-the-book British gangster movie kind of way.
