Mona Lisa meets The Long Good Friday in this dated crime drama in which disparate characters go in pursuit of money and power in 1980s Thatcherite London.

Plot Summary

An old-fashioned East End gangster finds his dominance of the London underworld in the 1980s threatened by the rise of a young rival, who has a very different attitude to organised crime. A wealthy American in town with money to invest becomes the focus of their feud, as they go to brutal lengths to secure his business. Crime thriller, with Ray McAnally, Ian Sears and Martin Landau.
