Once upon a time in Hackney....
Sirus likes to make a little extra cash on the side. Very occasionally 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.
