His son Jack seeks his revenge on those he believes are responsible for his father’s downfall – and we’re with him every step of the way as life turns him from adoring son to hard-bitten criminal.

“Jack, a small-time gangster, steps into a seedy world of loan sharking and gangland violence. A careful character study of London’s fetid underbelly”
