Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment are delighted to announce the release of Victim on Blu-ray and DVD on 1st October 2012. An intense portrayal of the consequences of crime, Victim, written by and starring Ashley Chin and Michael Maris (both Sket, Anuvahood), is the powerful story of one young man's attempts to break out of a cycle of gang culture and violence.
Boasting an impressive ensemble cast including David Harewood (Homeland, Blood Diamond), Ashley Madekwe (Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Revenge) and Frank Harper (The Football Factory), Victim also introduces a new wave of British talent including Letitia Wright (Top Boy), Jason Maza (Welcome to the Punch, Shifty), Shanika Warren-Markland (Adulthood, 4, 3, 2, 1), Natasha Sparkes (Burlesque Fairytales), Anna Nightingale (Mouth to Mouth) and Arnold Ocheng (Adulthood, 4, 3, 2, 1).
Tyson (Ashley Chin), Mannie (Jason Maza) and Jason (Michael Maris) are growing up together in a tough inner-city world where no one can be trusted and everyone is out for themselves.
With opportunities limited, crime is the only thing paying their bills. Using the girls; Charmaine (Shanika Warren-Markland), Davina (Anna Nightingale) and Yaren (Natasha Sparkes), as bait to lure in rich men, this is easy money and the group are living the high life. But for Tyson, it's not about the lifestyle, it's about supporting his little sister, Nyla (Letitia Wright), through school and paying off his mum's gambling debts.
Desperate to escape this world of gang culture and violence, Tyson meets Tia (Ashley Madekwe), who helps him see there are other ways to escape the cycle of poverty. But once you're in, it's hard to get out and with a final job promising a big pay day, Tyson prepares to take his biggest gamble yet. Caught up in an escalating chain of violent events, will he have to make the ultimate sacrifice?
