Film details


Police drama in which teams from London and Manchester work together to trail a £2 million cocaine deal. DS Jake Brown is working undercover as a bouncer in a Manchester nightclub owned by Lance Anthony Izzard, one of the biggest dealers in the North of England. They are expecting a shipment of cocaine in a tanker from Dover, but the tanker is trailed by the London drugs squad. En route the tanker is involved in a collision, and DI Harrington, a high-flying officer with little street experience, takes the place of the passenger and dealer. Harrington infiltrates Izzard's gang, and is close to discovering the main supplier and financier of the deal. One of the team is forced to take crack cocaine, and the operation is in danger of falling apart.
