West 10 LDN, based on short stories by Courttia Newland, was developed by award-winning Kudos Film and Television (Life On Mars, Spooks, Hustle), with director Menhaj Huda and writer Noel Clarke – the team behind the acclaimed no-holds-barred film Kidulthood.
Set on the Greenside estate in west London, West 10 LDN is a high-velocity drama which delves into the intense and passionate lives of the teenage generation who live there.
Love, danger, drugs, family, violence and tenderness power the drama. Told with warmth and wit, and a blast of originality, these are stories from the inside, about: a world only ever seen on TV when a shooting makes news headlines.
Eighteen-year-old Elisha (Ashley Madekwe) causes trouble from the moment she arrives. When her belongings are stolen, Elisha will risk anything to get them back, because she has secrets to hide. Her search leads us into Greenside, as Elisha finds herself facing the estate's bright lights and dark heart alike.
The characters she meets are rich and varied: Lacey (Ashley Walters) and Michael (Noel Clarke), are both legends in their own neighborhood; Elisha's feisty, funny, and fearless new friend Val (Chi Kolo); Val's volatile boyfriend Ray (Fraser Ayres, The Smoking Room); and Orin (Duane Henry), who, like Elisha, is also on a mission.
Orin is a good guy, a charmer, but he wants to be a big player on the estate. When a gang stashes a kilo of hash right before his eyes, he feels he has only one option. To steal it. He and his best friend Will find themselves with the best hash they've ever had – and in more danger than they've ever known.
When Orin and Elisha meet, they clash. But the spark between them is undeniable – and by the end of the film one will owe their life to the other.
