Synopsis

Set in London's East End, Pure is a story about innocence, seen through the eyes of 10 year old Paul. Following the death of his father, he takes on the role of caretaker to mother Mel and younger brother Lee. Paul's hunger for his mother's affection is as moving as her inability to respond as she seeks solace in drugs. With heroic optimism, Paul takes drastic steps to rescue Mel from her addiction. But only when she hits rock bottom is Mel able to summon the power to save herself and her family.
