ODEON says...

Set in 1970s Kingston, Jamaica and 1980s Hackney, Yardie centres on the life of a young Jamaican man named D. After his older brother Jerry Dread is murdered when a soundsystem turns violent, D is taken under the wing of crime lord and music producer, King Fox. But when a turf war escalates in Kingston, King Fox dispatches D to London, where he reconnects with his childhood sweetheart, Yvonne and hooks up with a soundclash crew called High Noon. But before he can be convinced to abandon his life of crime and follow "the righteous path", he encounters the man who shot his brother and embarks on an explosive quest for retribution - a quest which brings him into conflict with vicious London gangster Rico.

Adapted from the bestselling novel by Victor Headley, Yardie is a bold and exhilarating debut feature from Idris Elba.
