UK (2021) 82 minutes
Director: Ryan Andrew Hooper

This Welsh thriller mixes the dark comedy of the Coen Brothers with the antihero of Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns as the past catches up with a former criminal. Brendan (Michael Smiley) is content with his life as a lone toll booth operator in a small Welsh town. But when a familiar face from his previous life of crime resurfaces, it sets off a madcap chain of events that lead to a showdown of epic proportions. Meanwhile, local traffic cop Catrin’s (Annes Elwy) investigation into a robbery has her unknowingly heading directly into the thick of the action.
