About the Movie -
"Sucked into debt and finding themselves trapped by evil loan shark Danny Nolan, the desperate residents of the Owen Street estate in Salford come to the conclusion that the only way to free themselves is by bumping him off. One fateful morning, after a rollicking, sexy house party, that is exactly what happens. However, these are not professional killers and things unravel when a tough, uncompromising woman starts asking awkward questions. They think she is a copper, but Steph is Nolan's wife and she is twice as evil as he ever was.
Nervous hilarity, guilt and stumbling paranoia quickly set in. This is a "We-dunnit" that cackles with wicked laughs, wild parties, community spirit and grisly twists and turns right up to the last second.
