An MI6 operative named Victor Blackley (Flatley) turns his back on the agency after his fiancée is killed on a mission gone wrong.  Sometime later, he finds himself as the owner of ‘The Blue Moon’, a prestigious hotel in Barbados that acts as a safe haven for international criminals to complete under the table dealings.  Though, after years of turning his head to his guest’s business, he is pulled back in to the world he left when a former agent connected to his past turns up as part of a small party, who have come to conduct business on his grounds.  What begins as a chance encounter that reignites an old flame quickly becomes a life or death struggle to save not only those closest to him, but also the potential lives of millions throughout the world. 

Blackbird was produced by Glen Kirby and Jed Tune (Off Piste, The Pugilist) for Dancelord Pictures and West One Entertainment and co-produced by Five Knight Films (Cardboard Gangsters) and Parachute Film Studios.
