Witness the high drama of teen life, hundreds of feet off the ground. Adrenaline-seeking Surrey teens Aiden and Rikke scale bridges and jump off buildings in pursuit of digital clicks and likes they hope will get them out of “boring” Guildford. But they can’t outrun their trauma. Friends and family members die, they fall in and out of love, and prison might be more likely than YouTube stardom. Off the Rails offers sweat-inducing scenes reminiscent of Free Solo with a stylish urban twist and a candid look at declining mental health among working-class kids.

Screening Scotland-wide as part of the 75th edition of Edinburgh International Film Festival. EIFF 2022 takes place from 12-20 August. Join in the conversation and find out more at
