From the same micro-budget backers that helped bring us the much talked about Mum & Dad comes a film that covers 24 hours in the life of a charismatic Muslim crack dealer. "Riz Ahmed (Britz, The Road to Guantanamo) takes the title role of Shifty, a thriller charting an action packed 24 hours in the life of a young crack cocaine dealer on the outskirts of London. The sudden return home of his best friend sets in motion a chain of events that see Shifty’s life quickly spiral out of control. Stalked by a customer desperate to score at all costs, and with his family about to turn their back on him for good, Shifty must out-run and out-smart a rival drug dealer, played by Jason Flemyng (Stardust, Layer Cake), intent on setting him up. As his long time friend Chris, played by Daniel Mays (The Bank Job, Atonement), confronts the dark past he left behind him, Shifty is forced to face up to the violent future he’s hurtling towards. BAFTA-nominee and acclaimed stage and screen actress Francesca Annis (Revolver, The Libertine) also stars." Unfortunately I can't find any trailer, but the film was just picked up for distribution for parts of Europe by Metrodome. We do have some good news however, there's some stills after the break.
