A Very British Gangster is an all access guide into one of Britain's most dangerous crime families. For the very first time, a group of contemporary criminals open their lives to cameras to reveal a brutal world and an underclass which relies upon gangsters for justice, rather than police.
Britain's best-known investigative journalist turned director, Donal MacIntyre presents a close-up view of a world embroiled in kidnapping, torture, narcotics and murder. But behind the macho bravado, a poignant world is revealed where a community struggles with poverty, violence and drugs.
The film follows the trials and tribulations of mob boss Dominic Noonan over three years, as he lurches from criminal trial to criminal trial. Dominic, head of the Noonan crime dynasty, a second generation family of Irish stock, legally changed his last name to Lattlay Fottfoy, an acronym for the family motto; 'Look after those that look after you, **** off those that **** off you'.
