Bigga Than Ben
Two likeable but wayward Russian ”pieces of Moscow scum” arrives in London intent on bettering themselves and amassing an easy fortune. But it’s not long before Spiker and Cobakka realise that, legally, they aren’t going to get very far. So, aided by the dodgy Artash and sidekick Spartak, they learn to shoplift from supermarkets, rip off banks, joyride on the tube and turn mobile phones into crack. Finding themselves drawn into a shadowy underworld of backstreet drug deals, chav nightclubs, refugees and nymphomaniacs, life begins to turn sour. The highs begin to fade. Spiker badly misses his girlfriend back in Moscow, and seeks consolation in drugs. When he slips into serious addiction and Artash double-crosses them, Cobakka finds himself forced into making some life-changing decisions.
