Kidulthood follows Sam (Noel Clarke) and Trife (Aml Ameen), two 15-years-olds growing up in urban West London. Over two days, the pair some across various challenges, ending in trouble that was seemingly imminent from the start. Adulthood sees Sam released from jail and realising that life is no easier on the outside than it was on the inside and forced to confront the people he hurt most. Brotherhood follows Sam as he faces up to the new world and realises it comes with new problems and challenges. Sam know that to survive he must face his issues head on, and knows he will require old friends to help him survive new dangers.
