Details Limited Release: Feb 08, 2008; Rated: Unrated; Length: 90 Minutes; Genre: Mystery and Thriller; With: Georgia Groome and Lorraine Stanley; Distributor: Outsider

A tough-chick prostitute and an 11-year-old runaway in London step into a mess of trouble when a john gets creepy. They fight back, then flee by train to the seaside, pursued by the kind of rough-trade thugs who pursue thrown-away girls in low-life fantasies like this. Writer-director Paul Andrew Williams' unnecessarily hectic debut feature won several British film festival awards, no doubt for its bounty of low-budget stylized violence and blood, as well as its thing for prostitutes and runaways.
