Triple bill of dramas set in the violent world of British football hooliganism. 'Rise of the Footsoldier' (2007) offers a gritty portrayal of the life of football hooligan Carlton Leach (Ricci Harnett), whose innate ferocity propels him into an escalating life of serious crime.
Over the course of three decades, Leach 'progresses' from attack-dog hooligan to nightclub bouncer, before becoming involved with the ever-expanding drug scene - his passport into the criminal elite.
In the action drama sequel 'Green Street 2' (2009), the rivalry between the West Ham firm and the Millwall crew escalates when several members of both clubs are jailed following the events of the first film, culminating in a brutal football match between the prisoners as a way of settling their differences once and for all. 'Cass' (2008) is based on the true story of a Jamaican baby who loses his parents and is subsequently adopted and raised by an elderly white couple in London.
During his childhood Cass (Nonso Anozie) is forced to endure racist bullying, until one day he takes matters into his own hands and responds to the constant taunts with a violent outburst.
Cass becomes addicted to the buzz of fighting and soon becomes one of the most feared and respected men in the city.
Unfortunately, his new way of life eventually leads to an assassination attempt against him.
Cass survives but is left with an important choice - to fully embrace the violence that has shaped his life or to make a completely new start.
