Fresh out of jail and flat broke, Nick Kane (Tamer Hassan) is a desperate man with 24 hours to find £100,000.
As the recession hits the criminal world as hard as it is hitting Wall Street, notorious gangster and loan shark Mr. Thigo (Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson) arrives in London with his trusted aide Fitzroy (Ashley Walters) to make a brutal example out of one of his late payers.
Smashing his plans of going straight, Nick is given exactly 24 hours to come up with the money or face devastating consequences. As a guarantee, Thigo's men hold Nick's wheelchair-bound mum (Brenda Blethyn) hostage, leaving him no choice but to comply. Enlisting the help of his best mate, Bing (Danny Dyer), the boys embark on a frantic race against the clock; taking them from the dog tracks of East London to the underground drug scene of rural Manchester, as they try every trick and scam in the book to get the cash before it's too late...
