"A true soldier never leaves the battlefield."
Acclaimed British actor and BAFTA-nominee Toby Kebbell (PRINCE OF PERSIA, CONTROL) stars as the perfect anti-hero in his latest gritty, hard-hitting movie THE VETERAN.
Based in a London sink-estate, THE VETERAN tells the story of a young soldier returning from Afghanistan. Having experienced the hell of active combat, Robert Miller (Toby Kebbell) is flung back into society, suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Targeted as an undercover surveillance operative to monitor suspected terrorists in Britain, Miller soon becomes obsessed with saving Alayna, a young Anglo-Asian woman from a group of fanatics.
Realising the link between the war on terror and the war on drugs, from the soldiers on the front line to the drug dealers on the streets, Miller gradually becomes consumed by this dangerous underworld and his quest for justice - with devastating consequences.
Joining Kebbell in the cast line-up are award-winning British hip hop/grime artist Ashley “Bashy” Thomas (188.8.131.52, SHANK), up-and-coming young Israeli actress Adi Bielski, Tony Curran (THE ADVENTURES OF TIN TIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN), Tom Brooke (THE BOAT THAT ROCKED, THE YOUNG VICTORIA) and Emmy and BAFTA Award-winner and Golden Globe nominee Brian Cox (THE BOURNE IDENTITY, THE BOURNE SUPREMACY, X-MEN 2).
Written and directed by Matthew Hope (THE VANGUARD).
