Throw of a Dice

Set in London. Justin's Genes tells the story of Duncan Beckford, a London-born geneticist. Duncan's parents came to Britain from Trinidad in the 1960's. They worked hard to provide their two sons Duncan and Justin with a proper British Eduction to give them a better life. However Duncan's brother Justin is car jacked and burnt alive by four white youths. This sets him off on a quest to safeguard his unborn child's mortality. As a geneticist he resorts to science and his knowledge of genetics to protect his child. A very gritty, edgy film depicting unpalatable social reality.
