Well worth seeing
11 August 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent short film in the vein of other English directors like Mike Leigh. etc.

The movie centers around the daily grind of a young boy who is living in a modern day hell. His mother is a heroine addict who uses prostitution to pay for her habit and he is bullied at school. He is driven to extremes to try to break out of this vicious cycle.

The movie moves from scene to scene with such fluidity one would think that it was an experienced director at work. She has managed to pull the best out of the actors even though there is little script for them to use to bring out their characters. In addition to this the camera work suggests that the future is bright for this young director.
