Crooked Frames

  • slideshow_large


Deep in the Scottish Highlands, thieves steal a painting the size of a double bed. They crash during their getaway, and must carry their prize into the mountains to hide.

But how did it all come to this? CROOKED FRAMES puts each crook in the frame and tells their story:

Nick is quick-witted and iron-willed. The painting will be his no matter what.

Davey is just the getaway driver. Nothing bad ever happens to the driver... Right?

Lewis only wants to help a mate. He really doesn't know what he's signed up for.

Barry just really digs the art you know.

Cat wants to escape her own dark secrets.

Trevor is spontaneous and fun loving. Even when committing acts of violence.

'Head office'. Well, that's how she's listed in Trevor's phone. Has anyone ever actually met the boss?

The strands of their stories entwine and entangle before finally tying together when they find shelter in a mountain bothy: a remote highland hovel. In the middle of nowhere everything unravels as the truth finally emerges. Each of them must face up to what they have done, and in a fight for survival, must decide what they are prepared to do next.
