"A man had come looking to him for shelter, a man so objectionable, the only way he could have further offended Freddy was to get killed and leave his faceless corpse cooling in his cinema, which he had, and now Freddy was under suspicion from his own agency – implicated at best – and in danger of losing the little he had.

Make choices, don't look back, but don't, whatever you do, end up here."

Disgraced British spy, Freddy Mossman, is scraping by as the caretaker of an MI6 safe house in a Parisian red-light district. Bored and drifting, he calls on his old friend Jay, a photojournalist and habitual troublemaker, to visit the city as a diversion. Wanted by the government over some naughty photographs, Jay seizes the opportunity to lay low for a while, but is it low enough?
A chance meeting with Holly, an ex-girlfriend of Freddy's struggling to build a career within the subtle rules of Parisian business, brings the three together in an uneasy friendship. Freddy's haven however, turns out to be anything but safe, for even here he finds his previous life threatening his fragile existence, as he encounters those who would use him for their own, murderous, lucrative ends.
MAKE A MOVE is a slacker-thriller, its reluctant heroes operating with consummate indifference and bleak, occasionally childish humour. Told across six episodes, each a tale in itself, this is a story of beautiful spies and dirty pimps, of petty theft and cinematic history, of strained integrity and callous betrayal.

"How can you not love it here?"
