English

In the forgotten no-man’s-land along London’s eastern river Thames, a young man stands up to stop what he sees as evil but his friends see as harmless fun. Twenty year old Darren commits the ultimate taboo among his peers and opens his mouth – and for being a rat he is killed.

White working class Leo, is shattered and confused by his older brother’s death. He retreats into childhood and struggles to understand why his black friend Isaiah is apparently guilty of the murder. While his half-sister starts an unwitting relationship with the real killer and his mother sinks deeper into grief, it is left to seventeen year-old Leo to avoid easy revenge, take unpopular action and uncover uncomfortable truths. In so doing, he finds real friendship and hope in places he’d never have imagined.

This gritty, poetic and haunting drama, which grew out of workshops with bereaved teenagers, sheds new light on London and it’s young adults trying to navigate through life on the edge of the city. Made on a shoe-string budget over two years, it features a mixture first-time actors from the streets and youth clubs; real undertakers, preachers and strippers; underpinned by the collaboration of some of Britain’s most respected actors.
