Gone Too Far is a sparky, distinctive coming of age comedy set in Peckham, based on the award-winning 2007 play by Bola Agbaje.

When London teenager Yemi's big brother come to live with him from Nigeria, Ikudayisi's terrible fashion sense, broad Yoruba accent and misplaced confidence with the opposite sex threaten to destroy Yemi's already small amount of street cred.

When the pair are forced to spend the day together on their Peckham estate, Yemi is forced to confront local bullies, the unattainable girl of his dreams and his own African heritage, eventually teaching both of them the values of family and self-respect.
