Been a Riot 2013

United Kingdom Director. Alfie Barker

(This film is currently unrated by the BBFC, but we believe it would likely achieve an 15 rating if certified) Locked in a basement during the summer riots of 2012, a WPC and the young tearaway she’s arrested have to learn to trust each other and find a common bond.
