Bullet Boy

Bullet Boy Synopsis

Ricky is a black teenager from London's East End, a young offender who is one wrong step away from becoming another statistic in the prison system. He is surrounded by friends who have already crossed that line and the future looks bleak.

But it is his twelve year old brother Curtis, torn between the allure of his dangerous brother and his mum's more wholesome aspirations for him, who is really in the firing line.

A powerful and moving drama exploring the lives of young black men on the edge.
