You can't accuse Ben Drew, aka Plan B, of lacking ambition. In his debut film as a writer-director, he flits between numerous overlapping stories, and jumps back and forth in time, as he chronicles the lives of the crack addicts, drug dealers, pimps and prostitutes who haunt a London council estate.

But the fractured chronology would have been more commendable if Drew had mastered basic pacing, plotting, lighting and editing first.
