Dom Hemingway Synopsis

Dom Hemingway is a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse - funny, profane, and dangerous. Back on the streets of London after twelve years in prison, it’s time to collect what he’s owed for keeping his mouth shut.

Travelling with his devoted best friend (Grant), Dom visits his crime boss (Bichir) in the south of France to claim his reward. But Dom’s drink and drug-fuelled ego decides that what he’s lost can’t be replaced.

One car accident and a femme fatale later (Ghenea), Dom realizes that his priority must be to reconnect with his long-lost daughter (Clarke). 

But Dom does what Dom does best. He screws things up for everyone…
