Lava

London-set crime comedy written, directed by and starring Joe Tucker.

It's a blazing hot summer day in West London and two deluded heroes set out on a mission. Smiggy (Tucker) is a boasting buffoon who loudly claims to have seen active service in the army. Phillip (James Holmes) is a simple yet well-meaning supermarket shelf-stacker with one ambition: to avenge the beating of his brother Stevie (Harry Iggulden), received at an amusement arcade, that left him brain damaged. When the hapless pair locate the culprit, they inadvertently ignite a drugs dispute between rival gangs that soon escalates into a bullet-ridden bloodbath.

Leslie Grantham co-stars as a dodgy gun-dealer.
