Riz Ahmed (Britz, Dead Set) takes the title role of Shifty, a thriller charting an action packed 24 hours in the life of a young crack cocaine dealer on the outskirts of London. The sudden return home of his best friend sets in motion a chain of events that see Shiftys life quickly spiral out of control. Stalked by a customer desperate to score at all costs, and with his family about to turn their back on him for good, Shifty must out-run and out-smart a rival drug dealer intent on setting him up. As his long time friend Chris, played by Daniel Mays (The Bank Job, Plus One), confronts the dark past he left behind him, Shifty is forced to face up to the violent future he's heading fast towards.

 This is why British Independent Cinema...

... is alive and well!

Scorching performances and slick storytelling are just a few of the many things that elevate this film to pure greatness.

I must also mention the excellent music score by Molly Nyman and Harry Escott.

All this from a micro-budget film...

 Brilliant film

I would have to disagree with the below couple of reviews. The story is not slow at all, it does not have loads and loads of action but enough to keep you glued to the screen. You get to really know the characters and their lives. A brilliantly told and acted film with some top class actors.

 Fantastic British Cinema

I watched this at the cinema a while ago and have been waiting for the DVD release. 24 hours in the life of a drug dealer. Loads of twists, great acting by all, including a supporting role form Jason Flemyng. Director Eran Creevy is defo one to watch in the future!

5 Stars *****

It makes a nice change seeing a British film that isn't a wannabe Guy Ritchie gangster flick with every other word in the script being 'mug'. A good film with a good plot and good acting. Simples!
