Funded by the John Lyon’s Charity ‘Breaking The Chain’ is a short film that tells the story of a young boy’s involvement with a drugs gang in the aftermath of his older brother’s murder, and aims to raise awareness of the dangers faced by young people in similar situations. It was made with young volunteers at Exposure working alongside members of youth groups in Barnet.
The story shows how easy it is to be peer-pressured, to risk your life. These actors are bright. They KNOW the message they're giving, even though they haven't experienced it.– ‘A-star’, ex-drug dealer and gang member
