In Detail

Tyler (Conrad Kahn) is disengaged from his studies and the target of bullies, so when his single mother loses her job, he feels obliged to step up and falls under the spell of Simon, (portrayed chillingly by rising star Harris Dickinson).

A cycle of debt and exploitation unfolds in which Tyler’s mother Toni (Ashley Madekwe) struggles to save him from becoming collateral damage in a ruthless drugs trade.

This is an astounding debut which combines a vivid, empathetic approach to the working-class characters as well as a thriller master’s ability to unsettle. "A short, sharp jab to the national conscience." (Screen International)
