Storyline

Inspired by true events, it tells a story of fifteen-year-old Layla, who sets up the boy in love with her to be killed. When Troy discards her, Layla is left in ruins. She vows to rebuild herself as a hardened player in order to win him back and Shaun becomes a pawn in her game. Soon the forces she has set in motion are escalating out of control. The first UK urban drama seen from a girl's point of view, HONEYTRAP is authentically local in its setting but universal in its themes of passion, jealousy and revenge. We have not seen a character like Layla take centre-stage before and it's time her story to be told.

A WELCOME TRAP...!
5 July 2018 | by masonfiskSee all my reviews

Ahh the travails of youth, what stupidity kids of a certain generation go through because they feel the need to belong to anything in their small, important lives. Honeytrap follows a 15 year old ex pat from Trinidad staying w/her mother in Blighty as she navigates the treacherous annals of teendom. Watching this as I approach middle age, I winced & fretted over this teen's decisions, I wondered if I would be so dejected & gullible that I wouldn't make the same mistakes. Told & acted w/refreshing honesty, you may hate the journey this film takes you on but ultimately the sobering message is worth the trip.
