OUT OF DEPTH tells the tragic story of misguided good intentions, of family love and of the personal hopes and fears that lay behind several gangland killings.
Paul Nixon (Sean Maguire) has grown up with the poverty and violence that is part and parcel of life in certain parts of London. Now in his twenties Paul has a job in the media and an 'it-girl' girlfriend, Sarah (Josephine Butler). He is on his way up. When his mother (Rita Tushington) is attacked, however, instinct tells Paul that he must exact revenge, but when the professional villain he hires to carry out the beating asks for a favour in return, Paul is sucked into a life of drugs, violence and death.
Based on a true story, OUT OF DEPTH is a hard-hitting, contemporary, character-based thriller.
