Documentary filmmaker, Lewis J Maitland, is going into Medway prison to
meet former darts player, Rocky Goldfingers, as he completes a fifteen-year
sentence for the murder of his former teammate and protégé, Perry ‘The
Poison Arrow’ Peters. A crime he continues to claim he did not commit.
Poison Arrows is Maitland’s filmed record of what happens when Rocky gets
out and goes in search of whoever it was that “stitched him up”. It follows
Rocky’s desperate quest to find the real killer, in a hostile, disbelieving
world that’s changed beyond all recognition, from the one he left behind.
At the same time Maitland is himself on a quest, to win an elusive BAFTA,
by chronicling either his subject’s slow, delusional and tragic decline -
into denial and psychosis - or better still, if he’s really lucky, the
discovery of one of the most shocking and extraordinary sports conspiracies
of all time!
