CGiii Comment

An utterly absorbing & astonishing film...deserving of every prize awarded.

It's grim. It's heartbreaking. It's a shocking indictment on British society.

Toby Fell-Holden writes and directs with precision.

The acting...stunning.

The(ir) Blurb...

Tina doesn’t know much about the schoolgirl in the Hijab. She might come from Egypt or Iraq – but what does it matter? She would like to be there for her neighbour, protect her from her tough life at home and in the hood but how comes Tina thinks she knows so much about this foreign girl? Dana starts wondering why the blond girl has been paying her so much attention of late. Prejudice and tentative advances collide head-on in the block.
