About this movie

A dark and comical drama set in an idyllic rural town in England, following the story of Pep, who becomes a local hero after taking the law into his own hands to prevent a crime. Relishing in his new found glory Pep joins the neighbourhood watch to further his agenda and fulfil his dream of creating a utopia: a town free of crime and antisocial behaviour. Before long the extremity of Pep's measures and his aggressive and violent approach to achieving his goals becomes unacceptable to the local community, and he is shunned. Desperate to regain his hero status, the rumour of a paedophile gives Pep one last chance to save the day, and a manhunt ensues.

Excellent British Indie film - a documentary crew follow a vigilante who wants to stop anti-social behaviour in his town, but matters get out of hand. It does get quite dark, but there's a lot of humour and some genuine surprises along the way. Simon Cassidy is great as Pep, the small town hero of the title. An impressive debut from writer-director Darren Bolton.
