From writer/director Julian Simpson comes THE CRIMINAL, a modern film noir, where Jasper Rawlins (Steven Mackintosh) meets a blonde girl called Sarah Maitland (Natasha Little) in a bar. They seduce each other but Sarah mysteriously ends up dead in his apartment.
This conveniently makes Jasper the suspect in the murder case, in the eyes of the police, the bullying Detective-Inspector Walker (Bernard Hill) and his colleague Detective-Sgt Rebecca White (Holly Aird).
But Jasper finds his life spiralling out of control, framed for Sarah's murder and being pursued not only by the police but other assassins.
