Christopher Tew has never shied away from a challenging subject.
The Harlow director has photographed a community of malaria sufferers in Ghana and has lived in a Colombian slum for a project.

“I have always wanted to do a film in my own town but the hardest thing to do is find the right story line,” he said.

The film isn’t entirely set in the UK though as the Latvian protagonist, forms a pact with a Harlow heroin user to travel to the Baltic country in search of a better life.
