The film centres around an underground world of crime, sex and violence within Bradford in which chauffeur Donald’s life intertwines with his deceased boss’s mistress, Amber. A story of violence, arranged marriage and honour killings ensues as danger approaches the pair from every angle.

The movie had its world premiere at the prestigious Raindance Film Festival in September.

First-time director Mitu Misra said he is “delighted” at the film’s release in UK cinemas.

“It will give the Asian cinema-goer the opportunity to see a home-grown film that has a contemporary, uncompromising story with a modern-day twist but with a nod to family ties and values that they will recognise,” he said. “I believe that the audience is crying out for a film that is not only highly entertaining but also looks at current issues that are relevant to them.”

The film will be released in UK cinemas on 2nd February 2018.
