This film written by a fledgling Stephen Poliakoff and directed by Charles Sturridge wasn't given a proper theatrical release as far as I'm aware but was played a few times on television in the early eighties. It deals in a realistic and sometimes grim and dirty manner with the subject of teenage runaways, following the story of a girl who runs away from her (relatively loving) family to live in London. She ends up homeless, her parents don't hear from her and her father sets out to find her. Apart from an interesting if depressing soundtrack and some very memorable shots of desolate parts of London, dirty train stations and an empty indoor pool, the film does have a slightly TV-movie production quality to it, although perhaps this is because I only managed to see it broadcast. An interesting early work from Poliakoff.
