Working as a bouncer at The Baseline, the popular grime club, Danny is used to breaking up fights and managing drunken kids, but is abruptly hurtled into the underworld he has tried so hard to avoid when he rescues Terry the club owner and local gang leader, from a hit man. His loyalty earns him a quick promotion to club manager but only with the Faustian condition he first turn a blind eye, and eventually actively participate in, the bleak deals being done off the dance-floor by Terry’s number 2, Joe. After meeting a beautiful nurse, Jessica he attempts to break free of Terry’s grip by setting up on his own, but he soon finds out there’s no such thing as a clean slate when his best friend Paul is released from jail with a grudge against Danny and a debt to Terry he cannot possibly repay.
