Full synopsis

Mobeen receives a surprise visit from the armed police, who arrest his friend Eight on suspicion of supplying drugs to school children in Small Heath - based on the description of an 'Asian male in jogging bottoms'.

The real culprit is Shahid, a local dealer who's enlisted his mum's cousin's cousin - 14 year-old Kareema - to move his gear. But Mobeen refuses to snitch. When Kareema asks Mobeen's little sister Aks to help her hide the drugs from the police, she follows her brother's example. When Mobeen finds out, he has no other option than to go looking for Shahid - but will his actions have more drastic consequences?
