Canadian Paul Sarossy makes his directorial debut with this chilling crime thriller set in the back streets of London. Outwardly, Jon Bennet (Andrew Howard) is an ideal employee: neat, efficient and conscientious. But Jon secretly works for the Tattooed Man (David Calder), an terrifying figure whose taste for cruelty is only outweighed by his erudite learning and penchant for philosophy. The Tattooed Man takes care of Jon, feeding, clothing and educating his protégé - and asking for nothing in return but unquestioning loyalty. But when Jon runs into Andy (Andrew Tiernan) and first love Cathy (Geraldine O'Rawe) - old friends from school, now married with a child - the cosy normality of their lives awakens him to the unsatisfactory nature of the twilight world he inhabits. As Jon finds himself increasingly drawn towards Cathy, he begins to question everything that he has become. But how will the Tattooed Man react to being rivalled in Jon's affections?
