Twenty8K Soundtrack Snippet: Birmingham-born grime MC-cum-urban artist RoxXxan's contagious single, Bang Goes The Beat.
TWENTY8K hits UK cinema's on 10th September and arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and iTunes on 1st October 2012, courtesy of Cine-Britannia.
FROM BAFTA WINNING WRITER PAUL ABBOTT (SHAMELESS, STATE OF PLAY), COMES A STORY OF POWER, GREED, CORRUPTION AND LIES ON THE STREETS OF EAST LONDON IN THE RUN UP TO THE OLYMPIC GAMES.
Parminder Nagra (Bend It Like Beckham, ER, Alcatraz) is Deeva Jani, a successful, Paris-based fashion executive who is forced to return home to the UK when she receives the shocking news that her teenage brother Vipon, played by newcomer Sebastian Nanena, has been arrested for a fatal gang shooting in East London. As she and her family are vilified and the dead boy’s violent family threaten retribution against her brother in jail, Deeva turns detective in an attempt to uncover the truth, prove her brother’s innocence and save his life.
Teaming up with youth worker and ex-gang member, Clint, played by Jonas Armstrong (Robin Hood, Hit and Miss), Deeva soon finds herself up against powerful and unexpected adversaries including the corrupt but highly connected DCI Stone, played by Tony Award-winner Stephen Dillane (The Hours, SpyGame, Welcome to Sarajevo). As events unfold a deeper conspiracy is unlocked involving political corruption, media manipulation, prostitution, murder and power struggles way beyond London’s street gangs, all the way to the heart of the government.
The TWENTY8K soundtrack will be available to buy on iTunes.
