Leith’s Cables Wynd housing estate, known locally as the “Banana Flats”, became notorious as the crime-ridden centre of Europe’s heroin epidemic in the 1980s. The film follows a photographer and former resident who embarks on a quest to document the triumphs and tragedies that exist inside the estate’s 204 flats.
