  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Based on an Olivier Award winning play first performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London, Gone Too Far follows two estranged brothers over a single day as they meet for the first time, and struggle to accept each other for who they are. Iku, a proud confident Nigerian is excited to have come to London to live with his younger brother Yemi. Yemi, however, is a typical London teenager, desperate to prove himself a man, both to the local bullies, and to the girls on the estate, whatever the cost. Even if it means losing his brother. A day on the estate filled with danger and excitement, teaches both of them the values of family and self respect. Gone Too Far is an incredibly original and exciting interpretation of Black Britain for the screen; a wonderful opportunity to portray a vibrant group in a way that has never been done before.
