The completed thriller is the directorial debut of first assistant director Jonathan Eckersley, whose credits include The Railway Children Return and TV series such as His Dark Materials, Somewhere Boy and Line Of Duty.
It shot in North Wales and Derbyshire, and sees Boiling Point and Snatch actor James Fleyming star alongside Bruce Payne, Scott Wright, Stuart Brennan, Rocci Boy Williams, Jarreau Benjamin, George McCluskey and Mia Vore.
