When Georgie, a naïve girl from the right side of the tracks, fell for her bad boy lover, there was no way she could have foreseen that it would lead to a matter of life and death.
Jack, a charismatic pyromaniac schizophrenic, is a supplier of drugs. With his small gang of miscreants he keeps the middle classes and the city’s top dollar well supplied, working for Mr Greeg, a highly monied and inherently bad man, the most notorious bastard north of the river.
Unfortunately for Jack one of his clients owes him a lot of money, and if he owes Jack, Jack owes Greeg. When said client kills himself with Jack’s gun things take a turn for the worst.
Reeling from this calamity Georgie chances upon the dead man’s hidden stash of cocaine, worth twice what he owed. Realizing they can flog the lot, pay Greeg and pocket the rest, the gang arranges the sale, and simultaneously sets in motion a series of catastrophic events.
Can Georgie, Jack, Terry (one of Jack’s runners who’s tied up in a chair) and the elusive Pansy, make sense of what is happening around them, or will Greeg, eager to be squared out, succeed in his resolve.
This is a film driven by character flaws & human error and fuelled by Georgie’s maternal ambition to make it out alive, and just sometimes, such an endeavour gets rewarded.
"Georgie Maxim is exciting fresh, beautifully surreal and funny. It’s writer Mark Underwood has skilfully crafted an insane world inhabited by characters with real depth. It is ultimately a character driven piece with a strong female character at its heart, which is something we have worked at cultivating through the later stages of development. This story plunges you head first into a world of flashbacks, violence and fairies and the techniques we will use to tell this story promise to be ground-breaking in both its visual language and it’s casting."
