When Harvey Miller (Luke Treadaway) was framed by local businessman Steven Roper (Neil Maskell) for a crime he didn't commit, he lost everything. After twelve months in prison he returns to his home town, apparently wanting nothing more than to be reunited with his closest friends and his lost love. But a year in prison gives a man a long time to think, and Harvey has a plan.
With the help of his loyal group of friends, Harvey orchestrates the most dangerous and ingenious revenge. But before they know it, the group are in far deeper than they ever could have imagined and the odds seem to be stacked against them.
Six weeks later, battered and bruised, Harvey sits in a police interview room facing interrogation. Clutching a stack of eyewitness statements, Detective Inspector West (Timothy Spall) has no doubt as to Harvey's part in a foiled robbery, and the attempted murder of Steven Roper. Denying nothing, Harvey agrees to tell his version of events in full.
What unfolds is an exhilarating, moving and often hilarious story of loyalty, jealousy, friendship, revenge and the pursuit of happiness.
