Set to release on April 7th, City of Tiny Lights starring Riz Ahmed and Billie Piper is a unique portrait of contemporary London as a teeming multicultural metropolis where nothing is as it seems.
Meet Tommy Akhtar (Riz Ahmed), cricket fan, devoted son to an ailing father and deadbeat private eye. He’s got an office above a cab firm, a taste for cigarettes and bourbon, and a finely tuned moral compass that he keeps hidden behind a sharp cynicism. When Tommy walks into his office one morning to find high-class prostitute Melody seeking his help, he’s launched into a story that plays as an utterly original modern noir. He’s drawn into a murder investigation and a dangerous criminal underworld where he will discover dark secrets from his own past
