Harvey Miller had only just got out of prison having spent 12 months inside. Once reunited with his best pals Dempsey, Dodd and Charlie, he became hellbent on revenge, determined to get back at the man who put him inside in the first place: Steven Roper. After a 'business proposition' was made to him by a fellow prisoner, Harvey sets about planning the ultimate heist - a job that could bring them over £100,000, and not only that, he's willing to do anything to bring Roper down. Unfortunately, his plans go awry when he is subsequently arrested with a handful of eye-witnesses naming him as a criminal. Detective Inspector West, baffled at how the boys could've got a robbery so desperately wrong, hands over the opportunity to tell the truth from his point of view.
