What Goes Around

Synopsis

Youths, Tashan and Cola, have followed young, drug dealer Vince into the tower block where Cola lives with his mum. Tashan suspects Vince is selling drugs to his cousin Clarice in return for sexual favours – in fact the case.

When Vince exits Clarice’s flat, Tashan confronts him in the corridor. They face off. Tashan misreads the signs and panics, stabbing Vince in the gut. This act of violence then sets off a chain of events which brings the violence back to the original perpetrator.

So ends the circle: what goes around comes around.
