The picture, which marks the actor’s first project behind the camera, is set in Kingston and Hackney during the 1970s and 1980s and follows the life of a young Jamaican man named D, played by Aml Ameen, according to NME.

Scarred after witnessing his brother’s murder, he enters a life of crime and is taken under the wing of a Kingston Don and music producer named King Fox (Sheldon Shepherd).

D eventually travels to London where he reunites with his childhood sweetheart and crosses paths with his brother’s killer — an interaction which sets him on a revenge quest and culminates in a gang war. JB
