Bennie lives hand-to-mouth in a little bedsit, spending his days avoiding the unsavoury people who wander about his building.

All changes one day, when he agrees to help a bereaved father find a small piece of information in exchange for a sum of money which could change Bennie's life forever.

As he explores a stark urban underworld to dig into the past of a boy who became a killer, Bennie tests his wits to the limit, makes an unexpected friend, and risks his life to find the answers he needs.

Set in inner-city Britain, The Release explores vengeance, redemption, and the real meaning of freedom.
