Trying to escape a violent past in Ireland, Johnny Doyle hides out in Brixton,
London's toughest West Indian neighborhood but when his sociopathic former comrade
and mentor Flynn escapes from Brixton prison determined to derail the Irish peace
process, Johnny faces not only being dragged back into violence and away from his
new love, but also igniting a simmering feud with his 'Yardie' (West Indian drug gang)
neighbor. Questions of race, morality and loyalty play out against a great sound-track
of reggae, rock and soul.
