DIRECTOR(S): Rebecca Johnson

STARRING: Jessica Sula, Luicen Laviscount, Ntonga Mwanza, Naomi Ryan, Danielle Vitalis, Lauren Johns, Tosin Cole, Savannah Gordon-Liburd, Modupe Adeyeye

GENRE: Drama Film

SYNOPSIS: In Brixton, London, 15-year-old Layla gets sucked into gang activity and sets up the boy who’s in love with her to be killed. Rebecca Johnson skillfully directs this compelling film with an eye for authentic detail, characters, and settings which makes the premise all the more believable and terrifying as it illustrates how obsessive love can drive people to do unspeakably horrible things. Similar to Andrea Arnold’s early work, the film transports you as a fly-on-the-wall into its gritty, working-class, poverty-stricken, troubled-youth, atmosphere in England.
