As drug dealer Kirby is released from prison, young Jake is accepted by a local gang and another dealer, Ed, searches for his lost mobile phone with Aaron. Their stories become interlinked with those of a would-be teen model, a crack-addicted prostitute, a runaway single mother and a vengeful dealer. This multi-character drama is partly inspired by real events witnessed by the director and his friends . A forensic examination of urban crime, its social causes and corrosive effects, the film manages to be both a gripping thriller and a topical social critique. The debut feature of Ben Drew, a platinum-selling rapper and soul singer who records under the alias Plan B, this is an impressively mature and technically assured work.
