Holding On (UK)

A complex, moving story of life in the big bad city, in this case London. The tragic, senseless, futile murder of a beautiful young woman, just embarking on her journey through life, acts as a catalyst of change for a large and diverse group of people seemingly unconnected with this terrible event. As the ripples of change expand, this group of people comes under increasing pressure to face the harsh realities of their existence and turn away from the cozy fantasies they thought they knew.
