A haunting tale of racial violence by Mar­cus Brent. Minding their own business, two Asian boys suddenly find themselves the butt of a vicious attack by National Front supporters. Anil (Anay Chhabra) is caught, and suffers at their hands. Sunil (Ravi Kapoor) manages to escape and takes refuge in a derelict estate where he encounters a youth (Deepak Verma) not unlike himself in some ways, very differ­ent in others, compelling Sunil to reflect on his life. The build-up of tension over 15 minutes is commendable. Directed by Taghi Amirani.
