Inhalt

i.d.

John, a young ambitious copper, is sent undercover into the hardcore football hooligan gangs to try to find the ring-leaders. He slowly finds himself turning into one of the thugs he is infiltrating. The result is a desperate identity crisis.

Set amid the urban dereliction of South and East London the story is about police and gangs, a thriller about the seduction of violence. At the same time, the story tells about a man′s struggle to retain a sense of self when all those disparate elements that compose his personality have disintegrated.
