One Square Mile Film-coming to a cinema near you in 2013……
One Square Mile is a gritty, contemporary and poignant multilayered drama all set within one area of South West London.
Located in the present day, it follows a series of misplaced characters from a wide range of backgrounds as their lives cross paths.
Kingsley is a small time council estate drug dealer, who realises he has bigger dreams after striking up an unlikely friendship with ex-thespian Clarence during ‘Community Payback’ in the cemetery. But like many of his peers he missed out on a childhood, just living a ‘robbinhood’ and jealousy and business commitments mean that leaving his current life comes with its own risks.
Jahmal is a rich playboy for whom money means nothing and he gets far more than he bargained for when a beautiful model re-enters his life. But a shocking decision under pressure sends him on the run and money isn’t simply enough to save him from the looming darker forces.
George is a cab driver with hopes of becoming a father one day, until his life is torn apart through no fault of his own. But with the love and support of his wife he finally faces the world again and finds redemption to fulfil his dreams.
Emily is a wife and a mother, but she feels miscast in a role she just can’t seem to get to grips with. It doesn’t help that her estranged former-sportsman husband Max is on the brink and how much pain can one man take? But to save him, she first needs to find herself again and get her life back, which has been slowly slipping away.
All of these interconnecting stories illustrate that one can often be loneliest within a crowd.
As tension mounts, relationships are strained, loyalties are tested and violence erupts. However the message of the film is one of hope and that by working as a community things can only get better.
Inspired by Crash and Amores Perros and based on real events, One Square Mile is a moving and gripping portrayal of modern City life, which should resonate with everyone.
“The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together…” All’s Well That Ends Well” William Shakespeare. (Written between 1601-1608)
