Logline

Throughout the 80s and 90s an undercover Detective will stop at nothing to rid the West Midlands of crime, putting him on a collision course with trouble on both sides of the thin blue line. Based on true events.

Synopsis

LA, 1992, a seasoned DI Ronnie Howard is deep undercover. To save his career and protect lives he needs a large shipment of ecstasy and target Nigel Patrick back on UK soil for a landmark arrest. But unpredictable smuggler Nigel and his mule/lover are too busy enjoying the deal’s spoils to actually complete it.

As Ronnie tries to keep the sting on track, he regales us with the story of his life dedicated to fighting crime — a childhood surrounded by thieves, holding back the unrest of Thatcher’s 70s Britain and big undercover operations for CID in the 80s. 

But an evolving 90s Force do not share Ronnie’s mantra of justice at any cost. His relentless methods see him exiled…until new threat Nigel Patrick and a massive LA drug deal emerges, then Ronnie’s talents prove too hard to ignore.

Based on the book RONNIE’S LOOKING FOR TROUBLE
