EASTERN PROMISES is a mystery thriller set against a backdrop of London’s organised crime fraternity.

Violence

There is a focus on sadistic violence with bloody detail. There are three key scenes of extremely visceral violence, two images of throats being slit and one of a man's eye being viciously and repeatedly stabbed.

There is frequent strong language (‘f**k’), a sex scene and references to the rape of an underage girl. There is also reference to the forced use of heroin on an underage girl brought into England with others to work as prostitutes for criminal gangs.
