    Shifty Synopsis

    SHIFTY charts an action packed 24 hours in the life of a young crack cocaine dealer.

    The sudden return home of his best friend causes Shifty's life to quickly spiral out of control. Stalked by a customer desperate to score at all costs and with his family about to turn their backs on him for good, Shifty must out-run and out-smart a rival drug dealer intent on setting him up.

    As his long time friend, Chris, confronts the dark past he left behind him, Shifty is forced to face up to the violent future he's hurtling towards.
