Toby Kebbell plays Miller, an ex-soldier returned from Afghanistan to civilian life in the London council estate he used to call home. Miller immediately becomes entwined in local drug dealer trouble and secret security work at the employ of shady operative Gerry (Brian Cox). But it's a thinly populated drama, full of sketchy, unconvincing characters, such as the council estate crime lord who references both Sun Tzu and Call of Duty. It appears to have things to say about ex-servicemen, gun control and terrorism, but muddies any message with a preposterous cake-and-eat-it finale where the estate is turned into a war zone.
