Review

Our Score
This low-budget crime thriller from the Butcher's studio is set in the rough-and-ready world of trucking. However, British lorry drivers don't have the cinematic glamour of their American counterparts, so identifying the familiar British faces - Anthony Booth (Tony Blair's father-in-law), Patrick Cargill, Glynn Edwards - is the main point of interest in this very dated movie.

Summary

A criminal gang make a good living robbing long-distance lorries, until a divorcee helps a haulage contractor expose his partner as the head of the gang. Drama, starring Anthony Booth and Jacqueline Ellis.
