Concept

 

Trigger is a highly entertaining action film -- with some twists in the tale.

 

Dominic gets put in an impossible position. He has to help a good friend who is in trouble with the police. His actions determines whether or not a criminal gets bought to justice or whether a good friend escape the justice system. Calvin and Dominic question what does friendship and loyalty mean.

 

Challenging but never gratuitous, this film portrays several types of violence that is common in the criminal world.

 

The themes of loyalty, friendship and trust are explored in this film.

 

 

Set in the Herefordshire where there’s always something sinister underneath the surface (think Blue Velvet).

 

It will be a glossy, clean, highly saturated action packed themed film.

 

The editing to be fast but highly emotional.
