Synopsis

Mo Ali's futuristic knife-crime drama brings the dystopian environment of Children of Men and District 13 to London's East 17. Shank delivers a ruthless vision of forthcoming urban life, where guns have been superseded by knives and are fiercely wielded by aimless youths.Amidst the chaos is the Paper Chazers gang, a rare morally conscious group who trade scavenged food for money. After Chazers gang member, Junior (Kedar Williams-Stirling), witnesses his brother's murder, he must decide whether to get revenge or stick to the gang's moral code. In this fast-paced and artistic film, present-day social issues, and murky city streets, provide a canvas for imagination and action.
