When the road to success is littered with losers and even your closest colleagues are desperate for you to fail, what would you do to make it to the top?

London, 1997; the British music industry is on a winning streak. Britpop bands Blur, Oasis and The Verve rule the airwaves and Cool Britannia is in full swing.

27-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox is slashing and burning his way through the music business, a world where "no one knows anything" and where careers are made and broken by chance and the fickle tastes of the general public. Fuelled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, Stelfox lives the dream, as he searches for his next hit record.

But as the hits dry up and the industry begins to change, Stelfox takes the concept of "killer tunes" to a murderous new level in a desperate attempt to salvage his career.
