City of Tiny Lights

City of Tiny Lights is a cool, fast, funny and intelligent 'film noir' set in the depths of South West London. It follows the incomparable hero/anti hero Tommy Akhtar - a Ugandan-Indian-British, chain-smoking, alcoholic private eye, on the case of a missing prostitute, Natasha ( But Tommy soon discovers that the case goes way beyond his usual cheating husbands and runaway children, beyond anything he could have imagined: right to the heart of our paranoid post 7/7 government, where brown skin like Tommy's is no longer made to feel welcome.

Caught in a whirlwind of violence, deception, racism and 'religious fundamentalism', Tommy Akhtar starts to question what it really means to be 'British' right now.
