The door never has a chance to close in a small house in the suburbs of Brighton as a procession of friends and acquaintances pours in to greet a man and his son that have returned after years of absence. A classic sitcom scenario with a twist – the family is the center of local organized crime. After his release from jail, the father starts hunting down the suspected traitors. This award-winning film combines sitcom elements with mafia drama into a stylish show of British “kitchen-sink” realism. Organized crime scheming transplanted into the everyday world of a quiet suburb results in dark humor and tense drama.
