Two of London's top crime bosses make the critical mistake of losing a lucrative drug shipment intended for the Russian mafia, and plot an ingenious St. George's Day heist in order to settle their debt in this crime thriller from actor-turned-director Frank Harper. Micky Mannock and Ray Collishaw are cousins who have slowly and steadily become London's most powerful criminal kingpins. The pair's empire starts to crumble, however, when a lost drug shipment threatens to erupt into al all out war between the hometown gangsters and their vicious Russian counterparts. In order to save their necks and make a mint in the process, Micky and Ray plan an elaborate heist in Berlin using the highly-anticipated 3 Lions versus Germany football match as cover. Meanwhile, as the pair and their crew attempt to blend in with one of England's largest super firms, a key player in the plan plots a bitter betrayal.
