Synopsis

'County lines' is a term used to describe the transportation of illegal drugs, usually by young people and other vulnerable individuals groomed into organised crime. Based on the real experiences of young people heard by the film’s director at a Pupil Referral Unit in East London, County Lines sees how 14-year-old Tyler finds himself transporting narcotics for a local criminal. Excluded from school and with his mother struggling to provide for him and his sister, Tyler sees very few options for his life and future. Depicting how exploitation prays on young people that lack support and safeguarding within society, the film is an empathetic and at times grim look at an often hidden British reality.

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."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
