Not By Blood


Three foster brothers affected by the cost of living crisis, led by one, they attempt a ‘quick fix’ solution to their money problems. Set in a living room they share, they wait. As the minutes tick by we see as their relationships and dreams unfold. Challenged by rivalry, temptation and the political state of the times this black comedy looks to shed a light on the state of the world from the perspective of three young adults all trying to make their way in what seems like a bleak future. The clashing of personalities, opinions and opposing plans leads to controversy, betrayal and grim resolution. How does desperation affect us? Does family come before greed? Can you trust the ‘easy’ way out?
Christopher’s attempt to collaborate with Russian gangsters see’s his two foster brothers Eric and Harry challenge their morals. We see them dream but those same dreams die as reality pushed onto them by Christopher pulls them apart when their relationships are tested.
