The Contract is the night in the life of City Trader NICK DAYTON. Nick is a successful Hedge Fund trader, a quiet, smart, regimented man who is accustomed to controlling his environment. Nick is confronted by a band of Squatters" who have taken over his home. He is thrust into the world of London's criminal class that is so hellish, so fraught with danger that it will tax every fibre of Nick's being and eventually awaken that part of his soul that has grown dead and limp. The Contract is a hard-hitting "street" film with Nick being pitted against an array of street hustlers and con men. Nick is joined on his journey by Erika, a hypnotic beauty in her 20s, a woman who has lost her memory in a violent accident and is being hunted by small-time gangsters because she has something that they want. Nick is drawn into her dilemma and her seedy, violent world. For the sake of his own life and hers, he must piece together the jigsaw puzzle of her confused mind and rescue them both from harm.
