When the news reports on young men fighting in the streets, they don’t always say what they’re fighting for. Timmy and Marco are close friends, brothers from different boroughs who struck up a bond despite their different postcodes. But for young men like them in London, it is hard to avoid the clashes of rivalling gangs. When things start to turn sour, Timmy and Marco’s friendship is tested as they find themselves on opposing sides of a street war. A feature adapted from a Youtube series, Rapman (Andrew Onwubolu) drew on his own personal experiences from his childhood to tell this gritty, unglamarised story of friendship and violence on London’s streets.
