In a city of millions, teenager Ash (Michael Ajao) is lost. He wants to be the big man, but reality doesn’t quite deliver. A chance encounter leads him to make a dangerous decision, starting a chain reaction that plays out across these five connected short films.
As Ash faces down some vengeful bullies he interrupts Chloe’s (Georgina Campbell) romantic plans. Her target, Lucas, (Ben Tavassoli) is bewildered and seeks solace with Jules (Nina Yndis), a bored waitress. Jules ignores her customer Janine (Ruth Madeley), who breaks the law but escapes the attention of cop Michael (Sope Dirisu) - who encounters a badly beaten Ash, in need of help but unable to ask for it.
Ash’s choice started it all. Michael’s decision to intervene or walk away will end it.
Set in London and starring Idris Elba, the five standalone films feature chance encounters between characters which question identity and change perceptions.
