LOOTED will open in UK Cinemas on Friday 6th November 2020.
Synopsis: Hartlepool – a town that has long since seen the back of economic prosperity. ROB (21), a young car jacker, is part of a close-knit gang with best friends, LEO (22), JP (21) and Leo’s new girlfriend, KASIA (20). Rob’s got skills - he’s a great driver and a good laugh. They steal a family motor and take it to AMIR (30s) a local hood, to be stripped and sold on. Amir has a bigger, more lucrative job that he offers Leo, the self-proclaimed leader of the gang. Of course he will bring Rob along as the getaway driver.
But Rob has another, secret life, caring for his dying father OSWALD (52) who lies in a hospital bed in the living room, his failing lungs supported by an oxygen tank. Oswald is distant, angry that his son still doesn’t have a proper job. He is under the illusion that Rob is out job hunting; he’s not aware Rob is stealing cars to make ends meet. Rob knows that the compensation claim with Oswald’s former employer has been repeatedly denied. Keeping his father in the dark, Rob is starting to feel the pressure of all the lies.
