Social realist drama set on a West London housing estate directed by Gillies MacKinnon ('Regeneration', 'Hideous Kinky'). Ten-year-old Paul (Harry Eden) is struggling to hold his family together in the wake of his father's sudden death. His mother, Mel (Molly Parker) is a heroin addict, and an opening scene shows Paul preparing the drug for her and handing her the syringe as she apologises for forgetting his birthday. Things get worse still when Mel turns to an old friend, Lenny (David Wenham) for consolation. Lenny is the main drug dealer in the area and has many other demands on his time, including his pregnant girlfriend Louise (Keira Knightley), a crack addict. Mel's behaviour grows increasingly unstable, and when the police start investigating the drugs scene in the local area, Paul realises it's time he took matters into his own hands for himself and his younger brother, Lee (Vinni Hunter).
