Synopsis

Set during the height of the mob culture of America in the 1920s, a young Englishman Jimmy (Marc Warren) and two of his friends find themselves recruited into working for the mobster Al Capone. On discovering that Jimmy has a powerful uppercut, Capone's henchman Georgio puts Jimmy's name forward for a boxing match and under the wing of boxing coach Boom Boom (Richard Roundtree). However, Jimmy is told to throw the fight (which he is reluctant to do), his two mates are implicated in the kidnapping of Capone's son, and Jimmy is having an illicit affair with Georgio's girlfriend. Can the trio get out of all this hot water alive?
