However, Rashid, a charismatic and shrewd member of a local gang, wants a different life for his little brother and deals drugs hoping to put Mo through college.

Really enjoyable, great performance from lead actors
8 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

I saw the film at Sundance and I really liked it. The film represents a realistic portrayal of inner-city London gangs and the performances of the lead actors are excellent. In particular, the performance of James Floyd, who has a powerful and engaging on-screen presence deserves praise.

Don't be fooled into thinking this is just another low budget London gangs film. It is much more than that and the quality of the cast and crew shines through in the final product. The cinematography gives the film a truly authentic feel, giving it firmer foundations than many others of its kind.

This is definitely worth a watch and I hope the film gets recognised with more awards.
