This film swept the boards at the Seattle Film Festival in July 2021, winning five prizes including the Grand Jury Best Film award!

A visceral snapshot of the United Kingdom – tense, divided and balanced on a knife-edge. Topics such as migrant labour, class tension, tax evasion and toxic masculinity are woven into a taut Neo Western Thriller that grips and twists towards a devastating climax.

High in the remote Welsh mountains five builders are housed in a mouldy portacabin; thrown together to renovate a sprawling old farmhouse. Tensions soon simmer between the men and the self- entitled aristocratic homeowner, as well as amongst the rag tag group of men themselves. Bob, the kindly foreman, attempts to keep the peace as the bigoted Jim becomes a malign influence, taking a dislike to Ukranian labourer Viktor and slowly poisoning Bob’s own nephew against him.

As the weather closes in and payments are late, tempers fray. Blood is spilled. As the blue-collar men are confronted with an increasingly dark spiral of moral choices, Jim - now de-facto leader - makes an astonishing proposition...

"One of the most exciting British thrillers in years" - 4 stars, The Hollywood News
