Tagline: To live outside the law you must be...Honest.
Plot: Set amidst the Carnaby Street "happenings" and the hippie atmosphere of Swinging 60s' London, HONEST follows the escapades of three gun-toting, thieving sisters on a collision course with the world of peace, love and happiness.
The Chase sisters, Gerry (Nicole Appleton), Mandy (Natalie Appleton) and Jo (Melanie Blatt) are a tight knit team: East End girls with an attitude and aura of energy and liberation. Unbeknownst to anyone, they've begun to burgle and thieve, masquerading iconic masks to conceal their feminine beauty. These disguised bandits not only challenge the law, but they threaten the "old boy" code of the underworld gangs in East London. A world inhabited by their father, Tommy (James Cosmo), whose spirit was crippled by a past tragedy.
Looking for new action, the girls case a jewellery shop in Carnaby Street. While exploring the joint, Gerry encounters "Zero" London's radically chic alternative paper. She pretends to be looking for a job, but her presence attracts lewd looks from every guy at the paper, including from Andrew (Jonathan Cake), Zero's aristocrat publisher and occasional drug dealer. Daniel (Peter Facinelli), an American student swapping his studies at Oxford for a career as a journalist, also notices Gerry.
But the sisters' careful plans go awry
