Synopsis: For 15-year-old Trife, a boy from West London, life is a day-to-day struggle. Trapped between the worlds of his school friends, the girl he loves, and the draw of his powerful and dangerous uncle, Trife must choose between a path that he knows is right and a life of guns drugs and violence that he has come to know only too well. When a class mate's suicide leaves Trife and his crew, Mooney and Jay, with the day off school it seems as though circles of violence may have finally come to a tragic conclusion - but in a world where sex is currency, drugs are easy, and violence is a way of life, trouble can never to be too far around the corner.
Powerful, disturbing and moving. Kidulthood takes you deep into London’s unseen underbelly and delivers a gritty, hard-hitting reflection of what life is really like for 21st century teenagers.
