Walking back on her way from her nursing shift Sam (Jodie Whittaker) is mugged by a gang of shady looking teenagers.
Unfortunately for Sam, the teenagers and the Earth, the mugging is one of the most pleasant events of the next 24 hours, as the mugging is cut short by a comet smashing into Earth – containing an alien life-form which does not come in peace.
Realising that they’re the only thing now standing in the way of alien domination the gang - and Sam, team up and get ready to kick some alien ass. Bruv, this ain’t your everyday alien invasion, Attack the Block is explosive, hilarious and bold.
