    • Synopsis
    • Don’t fuck with Joe. A brutal story of sex and violence set in the urban streets and ivory towers, ‘Kill Kill Faster Faster’ is a tragic love story, a psychological journey with a snarling humour. A contemporary film noir, the voice of a man whose heart beats too loudly for his own good. Desperate to break free from the shackles of his past, Joe struggles for salvation and redemption.
      To ex-junkie Joe One-Way, there’s only one way he’ll leave prison and that’s in a box. Joe serves seventeen years of a life stretch for the passion murder of his beloved teenage bride, Kimba, a crime he can’t remember committing. One thing’s for sure, he’s effectively orphaned his beloved twin daughters. Inspired to write by Clinique, his Jamaican cellmate, his mentor and prison lover, Joe writes the critically acclaimed play ‘White Man: Black Hole’. Top US film producer, Markie Mann, wants to make it a film and employs Joe to write it. He pulls strings to get him parole. Markie gives Joe a second chance. Joe owes Markie, Markie owns Joe.
      Fleur is beautiful, Fleur is smart; Fleur is Markie Mann’s wife. She reminds Joe of Kimba, her past reminds Joe of his own. In prison she wrote of her life as a child prostitute on the streets of Marseilles. Markie bought the film rights, brought her to London, gave her a second chance. Fleur owes Markie, Markie owns Fleur.
      Joe and Fleur are kindred spirits. Their attraction to each other is irresistible. Fleur is Joe’s salvation. They are propelled on a journey of obsession, guilt, lust and passion. They know it’s wrong, but cannot stop. They betray the man who has saved them both.
      Joe has to find his daughters and stay clean. Tortured by remorse, he turns to the twins for redemption. Uneasy with his new status as a media celebrity, and terrified by his old life as an addict, he belongs nowhere; spending each day in a fancy office and each night in a homeless shelter. He struggles between the pull of heroin and the red haze of his rage that leads him to trouble every time. He’s trapped. The more he tries to do right, the worse things become, throwing him in a tail spin, a free-falling, spiralling descent to tragedy. Joe runs from the twins, Fleur runs from Joe, but it’s too late. Markie knows something and knowing something is lethal for everyone. Joe One-Way is discovering life on the outside maybe too dangerous even for him.
