ID2 Shadwell Army
DC Mohammed ‘Mo’ Anwari, a young and ambitious British Muslim undercover police officer, is sent to infiltrate the violent East London Shadwell Town gang. They are fired up by Shadwell FC’s takeover by a Russian oligarch who is using the club as a money laundering enterprise, liquidising assets in the form of highly valued international players and in doing so, pricing many local fans out of the ground.
Mo quickly becomes embroiled in the factions between local far-right groups and plans to build a new mosque in the shadow of the Shadwell ground which are creating an explosive environment in which football and political violence form a perfect storm of social unrest.
In the midst of this, Mo himself is faced with the essential existential question of who he really is and where he really belongs.
