When a criminal enterprise is carried down from generation to generation, it becomes increasingly difficult to escape its grasp. That’s what happened in Trespass Against Us, as Colby (played by Brendan Gleeson), a father, refuses to allow his son, Chad Cutler (played by Michael Fassbender), quit their previously established criminal organization. Chad, on the other hand, considers his children and wishes for them to have a life free from the criminal underworld.

Of course, Colby perceives it as his son’s betrayal, so he puts barriers in his way, but even Chad remains obstinate and determined to live a better and crime-free life, which frequently leads to friction between the father-son combo. According to filmmaker Adam Smith (via BFI), Chad enjoys being raised in a criminal family, but deep down he wishes to leave it all for his wife and children.
