Description

Johnny Lazar (Tim Guinee), a talented yet deeply troubled stand-up comedian, blows what should have been his big break on a top-rated US show.

Desperate for a fresh start, he leaps at the opportunity to move to the UK. An instant hit with audiences and embracing a clean life, he appears to have overcome his demons, but his second chance soon takes a deadly turn after he witnesses the ruthless killing of a gangland boss.

Determined to stay out trouble, he keeps quiet until the police arrest the wrong man – Delroy (Lennie James).

Will Johnny’s conscience force him to reveal what he witnessed causing himself to become a target?
