In the teeming, multicultural metropolis of modern-day London, a seemingly straightforward missing-person case launches a down-at-heel private eye into a dangerous world of religious fanaticism and political intrigue.
Tommy Akhtar (Riz Ahmed) - cricket fan, devoted son and deadbeat private eye - is just emerging from another hangover when his next case walks through the door. Melody (Cush Jumbo) wants him to find her friend Natasha who has gone missing without warning. As he delves deeper into the case, Tommy's journey to uncover the truth leads him into the hidden layers of modern London, unlocking shocking secrets about past loves, friendships and family.
‘City of Tiny Lights’ plays perfectly as a modern-day film noir with femme fatales, government spooks, and a wisecracking lead unafraid to deliver witty retorts after having his face bashed with a metal pipe.
