Casting complete. Applications are now closed.

Sam Johnson is an ex gang member from Hackney with a history of violence from robbing to stabbing people.

Sam left the gangster lifestyle when he met the girl of his dreams Jessica and fell madly in love with her..Their relationship is beautiful and Sam turns his life around until Jessicas jealous friends grow tired of Jessica spending so much time with sam and along with an extremely possesive mother, manipulate Jessica into believing Sam is controlling her and blackmails Jessica into leaving Sam on the couples 2 year anniversary.
Alone, heartbroken and losing his mind, Sam heads down the path of depression which is made worse when an old friend is killed protecting him from the man who wants Sam dead.

Through a series of flashbacks the full extent of sams ex gangster lifestyle is revealed and the relationship that helped him escape the lifestyle but ultimately draws him back to violence.

This film is a gritty portrayal of London and violence amongst the youth today, this film also deals with the emotional turmoil a breakup can bring a person an the extreme lengths it can drive them too....also the reality that sometimes in life true happiness can only be obtained by closing the door on what once was.

We are hoping that this film will be our big break into the film industry for the crew and actors alike.... the film will be filmed in HD and on location in various london areas, The City, Croydon, Bromley and other surrounding areas.

Please be aware all roles are unpaid but you will recieve a final copy off the film and be credited, the footage will be fantastic for a showreel.
We are looking to get this into film festivals nationally and globally and also for an IMDB page...we are also trying to secure funding from the BFI but no promises there of course...as you can see we really do have faith in this and are going for the bigtime.

Script has just been finished and we are looking to cast now. It is unknown when filming will begin as we are trying to secure funding from BFI!

Please only serious actors/actresses apply, we have no time for timewasters and we only want committed people who will give their absolute utmost in terms of performance and patience...This could be the big break for everybody if everybody mucks in!

Finally when applying can you please specify what role you wish to apply for any links to your previous work whatever it may be!
