DOWN TERRACE stars real life father and son Bob and Robin Hill as Bill and Karl, the heads of a crime family struggling to keep their business together as infighting and a police informant in their midst threaten to unravel it completely. Featuring stars of such beloved British TV shows as "Spaced," "The Office" and "Extras," the film is a pitch black comedy that alternates unexpectedly between shocking violence and realistic, even moving family drama.
