Synopsis by Mark Deming
A man looks outside the law for justice and discovers the price was far higher than he expected in the drama Out of Depth. Paul (Sean Maguire) is a graphic designer who is furiously angry and appalled when a drunken thug beats up his mother (Rita Tushingham) and adds insult to injury by urinating on her. Paul vows revenge, but an old chum from school, Steve (Danny Midwinter), tells him he has connections with strong-arm men who would be happy to do the dirty work for him. Paul is introduced to Lenny (Nicholas Ball), an unscrupulous gangster who makes sure the low life who beat up Paul's mum is dealt with harshly. However, Lenny then demands pay back by forcing Paul to deliver some drugs for him, which leads him into unexpected danger. Out of Depth was based on an actual incident.
