Beeba Boys is a ferocious, fast-paced story inspired by real incidents and characters. It takes us inside the world of Jeet Johar, a loving single father, a dutiful son, a proud, observant Sikh and a ruthless gangster managing a team of stylish, charismatic but brutal and unforgiving young men. Competing with rival gangs for increasingly shrinking turf, Jeet is under pressure that only increases when he falls for a beautiful blond juror at his murder trial and takes under his wing a new member with a suspicious background. — Twitch
