“An incredibly exciting film: a moral quandary played out like a thriller” Financial Times

Ivan Locke has dedicated his life to his family and his job as a Construction Manager. On the eve of the biggest challenge of his career a phone call sets in train events that will de-construct his family, his job and his integrity. The action takes place during a tension filled car journey showing how one decision can cause the complete collapse of a life.

“a daring experiment brilliantly executed, with Tom Hardy giving one of the performances of his career” Empire

“a film that manages to turn the logistics of pouring concrete into one of the most nail-biting thrillers of the year” Telegraph
