Drifting across the Atlantic to London to stay with relatives, Matt meets Pete Dunham (Charlie Hunnam), the leader of a local West Ham 'firm', and finds himself gradually drawn into the violent underworld of football hooliganism. Meanwhile, Pete's oldest friend and second in command of the firm, Bovver (Leo Gregory), starts to resent Matt's new position in the group and secretly plots to take him down. 'ID' (1995) sees policeman John (Reece Dinsdale) assigned, with his superior, Trevor (Richard Graham), to a secret four-man squad set up to bust the infamous 'Dogs' gang.
