Starring up-and-coming action star Jean-Paul Ly (Jailbreak), Nightshooters is a combination of martial arts and traditional British gangster films. The non-stop action-thriller is about a group of film-makers on the run from a violent mob of criminals after witnessing a brutal gangland execution.

Unable to escape their set, the hapless film crew must use their technical skill and cinematic knowledge to survive.

As the hoods draw near to eradicate all witnesses, stunt man Donnie (Jean-Paul Ly) is forced to take his martial arts capabilities off script, putting his skills to practice for survival. The sound team resourcefully use their equipment to track their surroundings as the special effects guru disregards all the rules of set, abandoning safety to set lethal traps as the cat and mouse game of survival ensues!
