Shank is an action film from 2010 which depicts a decayed and shattered London. The film focuses on the character of "Junior" and his elder brother "Rager." Rager runs a gang, called "The Paper Chaserz," currently planning on stealing goods from a local van. While the robbery is successful, Rager's enemies, the rival gang known as "The Soldiers," chase after them. The Soldiers manage to reclaim the stolen goods. While the Paper Chaserz manages to escape, Junior is left stranded and surrounded by Soldiers. Rager eventually reappears to save his brother in time, defeating all of the Soldiers while telling Junior to run. It is at this point when Tugz, leader of the Soldiers, appears behind Rager and shanks him repeatedly while Junior watches impotently from afar. Junior is able to coerce the Paper Chaserz into helping him out. The Chaserz seek out other gangs for assistance in hunting Tugz, with each attempt leading to a refusal with only a tidbit of helpful information. Eventually, some girls agree to help since they have their own vendettas against Tugz. Junior and The Paper Chaserz head to a nightclub run by Whisper, a cousin of two of the girls. Since the girls want the Soldiers taken down, Whisper helps Junior, with Junior now indebted to Whisper. The final battle of the film takes place over a derelict playground with the Soldiers squaring off against the combined forced of Junior, the Paper Chaserz, Ree Ree, Tash, Little Lexy, and Whisper's group. The Soldiers are summarily beaten and rout, with Tugz running off in a separate direction where Junior gives chase. This leads to Junior confronting him at the top of a stairwell. Tugz asks for mercy, expressing forgiveness for killing Rager. Junior neither believes or kills Tugz, dropping his weapon and leaving. Tugz grabs Junior's knife and attacks him, fatally falling over the railing as Junior defends himself.
