Tom Carver (Aidan Gillen) is a man stumbling blindly towards a crossroad in his life, thrown out of focus by the death of his teenage son a year earlier. He becomes involved in a feud with a teenage gang after a seemingly harmless collision with a young kid.

Sobering tale of inner city anarchy set amidst the mean streets of modern day London.
Tom is the Everyman faced with horrific choices and propelled forward by a family tragedy.
Superb lighting and crisp dialogue illuminate this modern day fable of a good man reaching and becoming aware of his limitations.
The dystopian depiction of London is an effective narrative device, the acting solid and capable and a mood of menace is maintained throughout.
The director Simon Blake shows himself to be a capable auteur and it will be interesting to see how his muse evolves.
