Recently released from prison, and unwilling to go back to the life that got him sent there, Harry Mitchel (Colin Farrell) goes to work for a reclusive English actress (Keira Knightley). Charlotte has holed up in her home, with only a friend (David Thewlis) for company, hiding from the never-ending pressure from the paparazzi who are continuously camped outside her house for the chance at a single photograph they could sell to the tabloids.

The trouble for Mitchel is his old life won’t let him go. Even though he doesn’t ask for it, Mitchel’s old pal Billy (Ben Chaplin) gets him a collecting job for a local crime boss named Gant (Ray Winstone) who sees Mitchel’s worth and wants to make him part of his organization.
