The film tells the story of Danny (Graham) and best friend Joseph (Akinnuoye-Agbaje) who are deeply loyal to one another thanks to a shared past. But when Danny is unable to repay his mounting debts to violent underworld boss Curtis (O’Hara), a devastating series of events unfolds that will test the friends’ bonds of love and loyalty to the limit. The story is loosely inspired by John Steinbeck’s classic novel Of Mice and Men.

Producers are Michael Knowles and Stacey Murray for Made Up North Productions (A Boy Called Dad [+see also:
