Mo is a 14-year-old student living with his Egyptian family on a Hackney housing estate. He shares a bedroom with his charismatic older brother Rashid, and idolises him. Rashid runs with a local gang, dabbles in drug dealing, sneaks out to see his girlfriend and surreptitiously slips money into his mother’s purse, though he wants something better than this for Mo, encouraging his younger brother’s college aspirations. However, Mo is keen to play the tough guy, and finds it hard to escape the lure of gang life just at a point when Rashid is navigating a necessary escape from it.
