Trailer For UK Urban Thriller "Payback Season" Surfaces (Opens March 9)


Directed by Danny Donnelly, the short story goes…

Hot shot Premiership footballer Jerome seems to have it all – a luxury flat, a fast car, any girl he wants, and a booming career. A vast contrast to the life he left behind. Following a run-in with his old crew, his world is turned upside down as he gets caught up in the gangland ways his friends still pursue, and before long finds himself being extorted by the dealers, crooks and dropouts he used to hang around with. Adding to this is his younger brother Arron, who finds himself seduced by this attractive yet dangerous lifestyle. With no easy way out, Jerome must make some impossible decisions that will have an irreversible impact on his life and career forever.

The film stars Adam Deacon (BAFTA nominated star of Anuvahood, Bonded By Blood and Kidulthood – films we've profiled on S&A), David Ajala, Zaraah Abrahams and others.

Pure Film, the company behind other UK *urban* titles we've profiled on S&A like Victim, produced the film.

It'll open in UK cinemas on March 9.
