Eager for a fresh start - that's Nicky Burkett (Chjwetel Ejiofor), just out of jail and never planning to go back. He's got a lot to stay straight for - his kid, Danny, for one thing and beautiful, sassy, policeman's daughter, Noreen Hurlock (Thandie Newton), for another. But chance has other plans for Nicky.
Caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, Nicky inadvertently crosses the wrong guy - gangster Micky Cousins (Max Beezley) - rekindling a hard man reputation that he just can't live down on the mean streets of Walthamstow, London. And when the stakes become Danny's future and the love of his life, he has to act tough. Fast, funny and heart-warming, IT WAS AN ACCIDENT is a sweet, stylish and funny love story for our cynical times.
