Once upon a time in Hackney....
Sirus is a Hackney courier controller who likes to make a little extra cash on the side. Sometimes he passes a small 'package' from his London supplier, Asif, to some small-time Welsh-Jamaican gangsters in the Welsh valleys. Tonight the latest of such deals is set to happen in Sirus' flat in Hackney, East London, much to the annoyance of his girlfriend, Amanda. This time, however, things are about to go terribly wrong. When the Welsh contingent arrives, they are horrified to discover that Asif has been interrogated by the police, and coerced into going through with the deal, under surveillance. Worse still, Asif is convinced that the two police detectives who interrogated him have more sinister motives, and are working 'off the books' on a private vendetta to steal the drugs, take the money, and kill all of them in the process.

A drug-fuelled night of mayhem and ineptitude! Hackney's Finest is a riotous and darkly-comic thriller that pits a motley bunch of hapless drug dealers against a group of Russian thugs, Welsh-Jamaican arms dealers, and a pair of particularly corrupt policemen.
Set in the East London borough of Hackney, this is an irreverent tale of greed, corruption and the fight for survival, told with a wink and a knowing smile.
The first feature from writer Thorin Seex and director Chris Bouchard ('The Hunt For Gollum' - the phenomenally successful viral short film). Produced in association with Framestore (2014 Academy award winning digital studio behind Alfonso Cuaran's Gravity).
NSFW TRAILER - WARNING contains STRONG LANGUAGE and HARD DRUG USE.
Hackney's Finest played its World Premiere to a sold-out screen 1 at Hackney Picturehouse as part of London's East End Film Festival on Saturday 14th June 2014.
The film is due for UK release in early 2015.
