Storyline

A thriving but underground drugs business is being run by Dushane (Ashley Walters) and his friend Sully (Kane Robinson) to become the richest men on the block. To live rich Dushane and Sully go into partnership with top don Bobby Raikes ('Geoff Bell (I)'). Rivalry with Kamale (Scorcher) and his gang results in their loan from Raikes being stolen, and they swear revenge. Thirteen-year old Ra'Nell (Malcolm Kamulete) gradually gets lured into the gang and drug business as his mother Lisa (Sharon Duncan-Brewster) has a breakdown and is hospitalised - with devastating consequences.

User Reviews

 
A perfect series
20 September 2019 | by gary_bestSee all my reviews

This show is flawless in every way.

The story, acting, music, atmosphere, just blew me away. The ending was emotional and must admit, I hated Dushane at the close but hands down, the best thing I've watched in years.

Outstanding performance (especially Sully and Dris).

A truly brilliant show.
