Based on the original hit stage play by Nicky Allt, One Night In Istanbul follows two down-on-their-luck Liverpool cabbies, Tommy and Gerry, who strike an unusual deal with a local gangster to take their sons on a trip of a lifetime to watch their beloved team play in the Champions League final in Istanbul.

However, big trouble awaits them, in the form of two ruthless crooks and a huge bag of stolen cash. It's not long before the pressure on the pitch is almost as heated as the action off it.
