Having played the Edinburgh Film Festival successfully, thriller Steel Country is headed to UK screens next month. And we're excited to offer an exclusive look at the new trailer.

Directed by Malice In Wonderland's Simon Fellows, Steel Country is a dark story of intrigue and mystery; the tale of a small-town outsider fighting for the truth about the disappearance of a local boy, and how his unrelenting, obsessional nature challenges his sanity.

Donald Devlin (Andrew Scott, who has received rave reviews for his work here) is a garbage man in Harburgh, Pennsylvania, a former steel town that has seen brighter days. A single father, Donny spends his days collecting the trash of the residents of this sleepy town alongside his best friend Donna Reutzel (Bronagh Waugh), and in his off-time, focusses his energies on being the best father he can be to his young daughter Wendy (Christa Beth Campbell).

But when Tyler Zeigler, a kid that would wave to Donny on his rounds of the neighbourhood, suddenly goes missing, Donny starts to fixate on finding out what has happened to him. With the local sheriff warning him off, and the town reacting to the young boy’s disappearance in a variety of confusing and out of character ways, Donny determines to learn the truth. But the truth may not want to reveal itself...
