Hugo Speer, Warren Clarke, Lee Williams, and Martin Freeman co-star in the gripping British thriller The Debt (2003), which originally aired on the BBC. The story concerns Geoff Dresner (Warren Clarke), a retired English safecracker forced back into the seedy underworld and illicit doings of his past when his son-in-law (Freeman) fails to pay a cutthroat loan shark -- and must immediately cough up an enormous sum of money if he has any hope of emerging unscathed. Dresner stages a robbery to aid the young man, but it quickly goes awry -- placing Dresner in a vice between a ruthless detective, eager to bring the thief in once and for all, and an attorney (Williams) unequipped with the experience or know-how to successfully defend this career criminal. Dresner suddenly finds himself caught up in a net of lies and double-crosses, struggling to find a way to save himself and assist his family in the process.
