The story begins in a bar, with the main character Alex and his gang dressed in White attire with plastic cod pieces similar to that of a cricketer. They wear black bowler hats and makeup around their right eyes. A synthesized piece of classical music plays in the background as Alex stares through the screen and into your room.
Suddenly, in comes the narration. Cockney rhyming slang mixed with some Russian dialect all spoken in a way that lets you understand every single word without too much thought.
Not even ten minutes into the film there is fighting, raping and beating people half to death after which they rob them of their possessions. Straight away this breaks you into the film at a frantic pace, one that lasts the entire film.
*Possible Spoilers from here*
All is going well for Alex, he's rich from all the stealing, enjoying himself with all the "in and out, in and out" and thinks he is untouchable. That is until one of his gang members decides he wants to be the leader. The rest of the group agree so Alex is setup and plays right into getting put away for murder.
Alex loses everything, he has gone from being the Alpha male in his group of vagrants to a 14 year jail sentence along with being stripped of all his possessions.
