Synopsis


1979.


The bitter Winter of Discontent.


The whole nation is at war with itself, battling industrial strikes, severe unemployment, crippling inflation and fears over immigration and home-grown terrorism.


But that's not going to cramp the style of a den of thieves in Brighton.


Unreconstructed, old-school grifters, they live by their wits and some very shady mores and morals.


But even they know the end of an era is nigh and their days are numbered, so each is after one last big score before the law and society's shifting sands catch up to them.


And if that score should happen to contain a priceless lost memoir and a beguiling young waitress from Naples, so much the better!
