I just heard that the film, which is currently wrapping up post-production, will make its world premiere at the Raindance Film Festival, which runs from September 28 to October 9 in London, so we should have some idea of what to expect soon thereafter.

I also expect we'll see a trailer shortly.

The British film is titled simply Victim.

Synopsis reads:

When "country-girl" Tia comes to stay with her cousin in the city, little does she realizes that her naivety will disturb the delicate balance of cousin Davina and her group of friends. Living the good life on a career of crime, Davina's friend Tyson struggles to be a parent to his teenage sister Nyla. Getting to know Tia allows Tyson to see a way out of his violent life. But Tia's blossoming romance is a consequence that Davina had not envisaged, and Davina begins to plot a terrible revenge.


Sounds ominous...

The film stars black British talents, Ashley Madekwe (above-left) as Tia, Ashley Chin (above-middle) as Tyson, with Anna Nightingale (above-right) rounding out the leads as Davina.

Alex Pillai is the director (his feature film debut), from a script co-writing by Ashley Chin.

Pure Film Productions is the company behind it.

We'll be watching for any further developments on this one...
