Synopsis

In modern-day Brighton, conman Leo Garfield (John Hannah) finds himself in hot water when he accepts a contract to murder businessman Julius Harvey's wife, Gloria. It transpires that Harvey has in fact tricked Leo, and that Gloria is not his wife at all. Meanwhile, Leo is heavily in debt to bookie Troy Cabrera (Eddie Izzard), and is facing pressure from local gangster Bruno Maitland (Brian Conley) - whose bodyguard, 'Moose', turns out to be Gloria's lover - to run his new casino. Also, Leo's wife Lily (Famke Janssen) presents another problem when her old flame Elmo (Fred Ward) pops up again, years after she abandoned him mid-heist.
