Against the background of the East End of London, first time filmmaker Nicola Collins explores the fascinating complexity of the lives of her father and friends; infamous criminals that shaped their war torn environment into a violent underworld.

The End is a story never before been told of a group of men with a common bond. All born in the East End of London into poverty striving for a better life and all found that life in crime. Unashamed and unapologetic these men live their lives defined by a code of honour.

The End reveals the bloody history and the confessions of a cockney gangster.
