Director: Julius Amedume
Cinematographer: David Liddel

This set-build at Greenford Studios had to convey a haunting atmosphere in order to build up to the story’s climactic ending, when a disturbing and brutal assault by a girl-gang on a teenage school boy concluded the tense drama. The pilasters seen (in green) are used as a means of disguising one of the floating walls, which allowed for maximum flexibility with camera angles. The bathtub was also fully functioning in order to allow the action to be as believable as possible. This film was specially selected for the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2009
