Dec 4, 7:46AM EST0

the idea for the film is so that people understand that gang crim and violace is still a majour issue in places like england as most people only realy think about gang wars and trouble in america, 

we are also trying to show people the real effects on drugs and how the gang life, prisson, drug abuse, and ental health canreally effect peoples life and that it is diffrent with each victim. 

so what i am trying to say is we are making the fil as a sort of suport for people who have suffered trough any kind of these life situations and to let them know they are not on there own we will also have help lines through out the film shown that peple can call if they wish. such as in the hospital and AA scenes.
