Two brothers return to the hometown they left eight years earlier, to find it still run by the same game of small-time drug dealers and petty thugs. Their purpose, it soon becomes clear, is not reunion, but revenge - a quest of particular significance for Richard (Paddy Considine), the leader of the two, whose obsessive desire to even the score will lead them into dangerous territory.

High Plains Drifter set in the Peak District, with Paddy Considine (who co wrote with Meadows) seeking those responsible for the death of his brother. Not just a suspenseful revenge drama, but Meadows again creates a real environment, whether the enervating poverty of his small town, or the feeble lives of his criminal gang.

This film is about retribution for the sins committed by a najirityof the cast. But then we get to the real conundrum: who is the 'ghost'? The original victim or the avenger?
