Police. Stop.

F*ck off!

- He's got me!

- F*ck, we gotta get across my end.

Next time, we need

a getaway driver.

Why did you park the

car so fucking far away?

Shit! He's right on our ass, mate.

Put your foot down.

Keep it running.

Oh, watch out!


life deals you a bad hand.

This game we all play turns ugly

and people get hurt.

Fifteen years ago,

people got hurt.

And it was down to us,

down to me.

When you're the

wrong side of 45,

and you've done time,

life's not easy.

You don't live,

you survive.

But survival is not

enough for me.

When you've felt the highs

and tasted the rewards,

everything else just

feels like treading water.

I may not have ever

earned an honest living

and money isn't

the key to happiness.

But when you've got nothing,

you crave like a

junkie craves a hit.

Scrabbling for enough to

live is the only incentive

anyone needs to think

outside of the law.

It just takes guts

and an opportunity.

Mitchell was my

right-hand man.

My partner in crime, literally.

We grew up on the same estate,

went to the same school,

stole our first car together.

Mitchell, to the register,

please. Mitchell, to the register.

I haven't seen him

since we went down.

From what I've heard,

he's as fucked as I am.

We haven't got a hope

and hope is all we need.

Pint, please, mate.

Make that two, please,

mate. I'll get these.


What the f*ck are

you doing here?

I came to find you, dickhead.

How are you?

Yeah, fine. Yeah.

Why are you really here?

We haven't spoken

in what... 10 years?

It's 15.

Look... Are you happy?

Are you comfortable?

You're having a laugh.

I work in a fucking pound shop.

I've got f*ck all.

I did seven years

for what happened.

I only did four.

Yeah, well, you showed

a bit of remorse, didn't you?

I was young and stupid.


it wasn't our fault.

We may have caused it,

but we didn't plan it.

You've done your

time, it's over.

Yeah, maybe.

Look, now more than ever,

I wish I lived a normal life.

But we've burnt our bridges.

There's no turning back, Mitch.

Look at us two, scraping by

on nothing. I want more.

Yeah, I want more and all.

But it ain't gonna happen.

We can't just start again.

We can't pull any jobs anymore

'cause we don't know how.

You need a computer degree to

understand shit these days.

Banks are the only

places who got cash.

And the security systems

are so sophisticated,

I would not know where to start.

What if I've found somewhere?

Somewhere that we can do.


It's in town.

It's a shit load of cash

and very little in

the way of security.

What? Guns and masks?

Exactly, an old school blag.

We can do it.


We don't do this anymore.

We don't even know

each other anymore.

I get up every...

Every morning.

I spend half an hour

just cursing my back.

I'm popping more pills now

than I did in the '90s.


Then spend the next 10 years at

the pound shop. It's your call.

It's not my call.

It's all there is.

I don't want to live like this.

Then help me.

We can do this together.

One more job.

Then we can just get

the f*ck out of here.

Spain, Florida, you name it.

What, you're off?

We'd have to.

I've got no one to stay

here for. Have you?

No. No one.

How much?

- What, the take?

- Yeah.

Half a mil.

500 grand.

250 each?

We're gonna

have to pay a driver.

I'm not cutting anyone else in.

You know someone?

I do know a guy who'll

do it for 10 grand.

He doesn't want to know

any details. He just drives.

Where'd you find him?

He was recommended.

Plus, he's got a place where
