Hailing from a North Peckham estate, 20-year old Sodiq Adeojo's childhood dreams to be a doctor were on the cusp of being realized, with offers from universities including King's College. However, when he was charged with the gang-related shooting of an equally gifted teenager, two promising futures were shattered in one stroke. With a scrupulous look at the evidence in the case, director Michael goes right to the heart of this tragic story.
