Described as the first ever English/Italian gangster movie set in Rome, Unredeemed has been written and produced by Rome expat Eddie Zengeni.
Originally fom the UK, of Irish-Zimbabwean heritage, Zengeni plays the lead role in the gangster movie which is being filmed entirely in Rome, in both English and Italian, and offers an alternative view of modern life in the capital.
The film centres around Jimmy, a mixed-race London gangster whose pregnant girlfriend Sandra tries in vain to convince him to change his ways. However Jimmy is under pressure from his crime boss to carry out a murder. Can his friendship with a tough-talking Irish-American priest, who is suffering a crisis of faith, help save Jimmy from the road to ruin?
