Synopsis

When Chris returns to London after a four-year absence, he looks up his old mate Shifty who now deals drugs, specifically crack. Chris tags along on Shifty's 'errands' and sees how the drug has taken hold of the community he once knew - and his friend's future. Made for just £100,000 under the Microwave Initiative, this gritty drama infused with ribald humour won rave reviews and award nominations for its superb leads.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
