The film is set in 1950s London, where a desperate Hollywood film producer sets out to turn a popular West End play into a film. When members of the production are murdered, world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and overzealous rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) find themselves in the midst of a puzzling whodunit within London’s glamorous Theatreland and sordid underground.
Tom George (This Country) directs, TV writer Mark Chappell (Bliss) wrote the script and Damian Jones (Belle, The Iron Lad) produces.
