Two worlds collide in Traveller, an action-packed tale of violence, corruption and the little known world of the traveller community starring David Essex and his son Billy Cook, which comes to DVD on 27th January 2014 courtesy of Metrodome Distibution.
Billy Cook plays Owen McBride a half-breed Gypsy who struggles with his identity, but is reluctant to cut his ties with the Traveller world.
As a favour to a friend he gets involved with a botched robbery and finds himself on the run from a murderous gangster as well as the police. He finds refuge with Gypsy horse dealer Blackberry (David Essex) and forms an unusual alliance with a young female police officer (Kerrie Hayes - The Mill). But the Gorja world soon clashes with the Gypsy world culminating in a deadly climax.
The action is non-stop with bare-knuckle fights and violent confrontations as well as an off-limits encounter with beautiful gypsy woman Litzy (Lois Winstone).
Based on John F. McDonald's novel Tribe, Traveller was filmed on a genuine traveller site and features real travellers. This Savanna films and Moving Pictures Media production is directed by Benjamin Johns in his feature film debut and produced by Isabella Marchese Ragona with a soundtrack created by David Essex.
