Development Pitch

Alex is a bright, ambitious ex-boxer living in a remote Siberian town with ties to the Russian mob. When the love of his life, Olga, a talented, up and coming volleyball star, decides to leave town and pursue her dreams of making the Russian Olympic squad, Alex is crushed. After crossing paths with Nic, a member of the Russian Mob, Alex flees to London under the guise of learning English, attaining a better life and, if possible, win-ning Olga back. Once in London, he befriends a local, Bob, who takes it upon himself to arrange work for the young Russian immigrant. Through this work, Alex crosses paths with his past and a local Russian Mob Boss whose sights are set on the exploitation of the Russian Women’s Olympic Volleyball team - and Olga in particular. Alex is then swept back into his old world of criminal back dealings as he races to save Nic, Olga, and himself from becoming just another shadowy, front-page murder statistic.
