See the action unfold in the upcoming film ‘Plastic,’ as the crime drama takes heist of the UK on May 2, 2014 with its scheduled release. The movie is the latest directorial effort from ‘Rise of the Foot Soldier’ helmer, Julian Gilbey. The filmmaker also co-wrote the script with Will Gilbey and producer Chris Howard.

‘Plastic,’ which is based on true events, tells the story of a group of university students who turn to stealing credit cards in order to supplement their income.
