Summary

Following his exclusion from school, Ray attends a Social Exclusion Project at which he develops his music skills. Forming a band brings him into conflict with other rap artists, which escalates into violent gang warfare.

Ray has trouble at home, and he has trouble at school. Then suddenly he has no more trouble at school, but only because he and his friends have been permanently suspended.

What happens to a boy like Ray? If he's lucky, maybe he gets a chance to shine.

The story of three boys who aren't easy. They don't fit in. They seem to attract trouble. But they know what they want, more than most perhaps.

NOTE : Contains violence and swearing. Ray's girlfriend is shot dead in an attack after a show and Ray then manages to get hold of a gun as he plans to avenge her killing. He is persuaded by his mates to throw the gun away.
