Tommy Hicks was born on the 15th of March, 1975 in Bethnal Green, London. Abused by his alcoholic father Steve, he suffered a horrific childhood and lived in constant fear.
Tommy's fear was not only for himself, but also his mother Lisa, who also suffered abuse, domestic and otherwise! Things only get worse for Tommy though as he is bullied at school for several years and then tormented as a teenager thus adding even more psychological stress to his fragile developing teenage mind.
At the age of 16 Tommy joins the British Army as a means of escape and salvation. However, now a changed man Tommy now known as Tom returns home after a 15 year absence to a decaying modern day London society and does not like what he sees! His community is infected with crime, drugs and fear. There are Greek, Black and Cockney gangs ruling the streets. Teenagers are selecting vunerable people and filming terrible acts of violence such as Happy Slapping on their mobile phones.
Teenage pregnancy and prostitution are rife as is drug dealing and burglary. Frustrated with the lack of police action and the pathetic sentences and weak deterrents given out by the courts as punishment, Tom decides to deliver his own deterrent which seems to be quite effective! With so much activity going on, Tom's community and estate are in a constant state of flux with corrupt police and crime lords looking for him like a predator looks for its prey... Only Tom is no prey!
