Director's Statement

After Trump and Brexit, I was witnessing so many "low level" racist and xenophobic incidents in London. These things were not happening before. Suddenly, people felt it was okay to be abusive. I wanted to make that my starting point in the story but explore just how pointless this all is. We are all heading towards the same end anyway. We are all tenants here. There are no freeholders. I am very proud of the reaction this film is getting. It is what I was hoping for.

Category: Drama.
Themes: Abuse, Friendship, World Cinema.
