When Shelly meets Rachel, two dysfunctional girls from radically opposed backgrounds set off on a collision course that will leave one of them shattered, the other re-born. Set in the forsaken wastelands of Cheshire's little-seen urban overspill, The Violators charts a teenage girl's path from battle-hardened cynicism to the hope of a better life.Written by

Shelly lives in the urban overspill of Cheshire in a sink hole estate with her brothers, one who is a bit of a lad and the younger who is confused and in need of some succour in life . Said life is not easy and money is hard to find and the estate where they live can be a cruel place. Then her paths cross with local loan shark and all round nasty type Mikey Finnegan and he is very much taken by the fifteen year old.
She also happens upon Rachel who comes from the other side of the tracks and shows a remarkable interest in the young girl. However everyone seems to have hidden agendas and some, though, are not so well hidden and before long the masks of contrivance slip.
Now this is the directorial debut from Helen Walsh who also wrote this and I think she has made a film that she can very much be proud of. The direction is great the actors all do a commendable job and the camera angles and framed shots show that a lot of thought has gone into this and the results are obvious. This is an off beat story in an unusual part of the country and it manages to be intriguing, compelling, original and very easy to recommend.
