Rocks (Bukky Bakray) is a London teenager whose life is radically altered when she is left on her own with a little brother who needs her. Fearing they will be separated, she decides to step up to the situation. With the help of her friends, she evades the authorities and navigates the most defining days of her life. Rocks is a film about the joy, resilience and spirit of girlhood.

Based on a script by award-winning playwrights Theresa Ikoko and Claire Wilson, and directed by Sarah Gavron (Suffragette, Brick Lane), Rocks is a raucous celebration of female friendship told with wit, compassion and vibrant performances from a stunning young ensemble cast. GFF20
