In their world, their are no happy endings.
Leigh-Anne Williams is a single teenage mother, Gavin is desperately chasing love, Robbie is determined to move beyond his dead-end community and Stephen is yearning to find a new identity. They all operate along the margins of society... until one day, paranoia, boredom, frustration and rage explode in a lethal combination. When her baby girl's future appears threatened, Leigh-Anne's Turkish neighbor becomes the target of pent-up anger and humiliation. Seemingly driven by racial hatred, a ferocious murder takes place and in an instant, the teenagers seal their fate!
With a formidable supporting performance by OscarÂ® nominated Brenda Blethyn and the emotionally stirring music of Grammy nominated David Gray, A Way Of Life will haunt you with its staggering intensity and devastating power.
