The practice of using children to pass drugs from cities to rural and coastal areas, ‘county lines’, is condemned through this powerful feature debut, a fiction based on real events.

Tyler is a 14-year-old boy with a lot on his plate. School issues have landed him in a Peer Referral Unit, where he is ruthlessly bullied by his classmates. His single mum Toni is loving but overworked, leaving Tyler to raise his little sister.

Tyler is all too vulnerable when the exceedingly charming Simon walks into his life. Grooming him with expensive gifts and lending a sympathetic ear, Simon coerces vulnerable Tyler into becoming a county lines trafficker, moving drugs to rural areas around England, selling the gear, then returning with the cash – completely alone.

Casting a bare-all snapshot of an underground phenomenon bubbling under the surface, County Lines brings the stark realities of vulnerable people across the world very close to home.

"County Lines is visually lyrical but unflinching and often brutal, in the social-realist tradition of Ken Loach" - The Guardian
