Synopsis

1979: Election Night - a police interview room. Delroy's pregnant wife has been found dead in a pool of blood and he is brought in as the chief suspect. With all the evidence stacking up against him Delroy continually refuses to confess. He suffers a night of callous humiliation at the hands of two racist coppers, both high on the impending Conservative landslide victory.

More concerned with the outcome of the election than establishing the truth they resort to brutal interrogation. The country wakes up to a new dawn with Margaret Thatcher as the new Prime Minister and Delroy's world is changed forever.

From the writer of British classic 'The Long Good Friday' and based on a true story, Sus is a powerful cry against institutional racism which is as relevant today as ever. It pulls no punches in its depiction of a corrupt system that fails the very people it should protect.
