Nicky Burkett, still incarcerated at the end of Vinnie Got Blown Away, is released on to the streets of Walthamstow in It Was An Accident. He wants to go straight. His girlfriend Noreen wants him to go straight and she won't go near him if he doesn't. He tries. But events and people conspire against him. He is offered "work." He is attacked. His mates are attacked. He runs to Jamaica and is attacked again. Now the fight back begins . . . Filmed starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Max Beesley, and James Bolam, It Was An Accident is the fast, furious, bloody and hilarious follow up to the acclaimed Vinnie Got Blown Away.
