Blue Moon

What would you do if you had one chance to turn your life around? Would you steal half a million dollars if nobody in the world would ever know?

Horace Jones, near bankrupt petrol station proprietor, foolishly misappropriates stolen drug money believing no one will ever know. Pretty soon his chaotic but safe existence is under threat when gang enforcer Darren Cates arrives on the scene desperate to reclaim the cash. The only trouble is Horace has locked the money in the time-lock safe and they’ll have to wait until 6am to open it. As the two men wait it out Horace realises there’s something horribly familiar about Darren. They both sang in the choir at Christ College forty years ago.
