Supplying London's addicts with a steady supply of drugs, a Pakistani lad─the well-named Shifty (Riz Ahmed)─finds his livelihood threatened by the return of a friend (Daniel Mays) who wants to dissuade him from continuing a life of crime. Added to that tension is a rival's (Jason Flemyng) hidden plan to take him down permanently. Intense British indie co-stars Nitin Ganatra, Francesca Annis. 85 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
