Focusing on the residents of a traditional East London street - where the glinting steel and mirror-glass skyscrapers of London’s financial hub are edging ever closer - this fascinating doc explores love, loss, and a community unravelled by gentrification.

The area surrounding Hoxton Street has been transformed by ‘luxury’ redevelopments and sky-high property prices. Less than a mile from the City of London, it’s become one of the last bastions for the area’s disadvantaged – a concentration of the aged, poor and dispossessed.

Following its inhabitants over a four-year period, Zed Nelson’s debut feature-length documentary charts the toxic collision of gentrification, austerity and the nation’s slide into Brexit.
